A DEPUTY judge yesterday ordered that $310 be returned to the driver of a getaway vehicle involved in two robberies. After sentencing Chung Chi-wah, a substitute public light bus driver, to five years' jail for two counts of robbery, which he admitted, Deputy Judge Muttrie ordered that after restitution was paid to the victims, the balance of the money recovered be returned to Chung. The court heard police recovered a total of $6,360 from Chung and three co-accused, and it was calculated that $6,050 should be given to the robbery victims. Chung, 30, was the driver of the public light bus involved in the robberies. He pleaded not guilty to a third count of robbery and the Crown offered no evidence against him. In mitigation, Chung's counsel, Michael Wong, said the defendant only took part in the robberies to help his friends. Yau Chi-wa, 29, unemployed, and Lai Kam-sang, 28, a delivery worker, pleaded guilty to a joint count of robbery and Lai admitted a count of robbery with Chung. Yau and Lai were each sentenced to five years in jail. The fourth defendant, Lee Ah-hei, 29, who had pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery, will be sentenced tomorrow. Prosecutor Richard Wong said Lai and Lee entered Mei Yar Curtains and Decoration Company in Gordon Road, North Point, with knives at 9.15 pm on August 16 last year. Chan Kam-chuen and Chan Yin-nar were tied up before Lai and Lee fled with $3,100 cash and valuables. Yau and Lai were seen boarding a public light bus driven by Chung and with Lee inside, the court heard. Mr Wong said the defendants were arrested at a car park in Sau Mau Ping. The court heard Lee robbed five passengers on a public light bus driven by Chung at 1 pm that day. Lai also admitted taking part in a robbery on a public light bus, allegedly driven by Chung, on August 14.
