Drug addict steals from women he lured to bed

A drug addict who stole more than 15,000 yuan (US$2,363) from women he had a one-night stand with to pay for his drug bills has been sentenced to two years and nine months in prison, the Hongkou District People's Court said today.

Han Shang, a 29-year-old convict, was also fined 3,000 yuan for theft. The man hooked up with 11 women he met through social networking websites between June 2009 and July 2011.

Han pretended to be a wealthy white-collar who was seeking one-night stand to release work pressure, the court heard.

After having sex with them, Han stole cash, mobile phones and other belongings from those women when they were having a shower in the bathroom.

He was arrested after one of the victims reported to the police.

Han said he had never thought the victims would alert the police as it would be "too embarrassing" for them.

The court said Han began taking drugs in 2007 and had two criminal records related with drugs. In June 2007, he was detained for three months for drug trafficking. In September 2008, he was jailed for six months for sheltering a drug dealer.

After he was released, Han began taking drugs again but could not afford the costly bills because he had no job.

The good-looking young man then lured women to have one-night stands with him and took the opportunity to steal their money and valuables. He said it was "a fast way to make money while enjoying fun."
