Woman gets prison for stealing fancy electronics

A drug addict was sentenced to three years in prison with a three-year reprieve for stealing goods worth more than 60,000 yuan (US$9,438) from downtown mega stores such as Metro Mall and Media Markt, Huangpu District People's Court said yesterday.

The 58-year-old convict stole high-end digital cameras, tablet computers, luxury cosmetics and imported wines between June 2011 and January this year. Prosecutors said the convict hid the stolen items in her red backpack and was caught once. She was released after paying a fine and that made her more daring, the court heard. She was also fined 5,000 yuan.
