S'porean, 28, steals from twin brother and father to feed gambling habit
A twin with a gambling problem stole from his brother and father by dishonestly using their credit cards and cheque books to buy items which he later sold to feed his gambling habit.
Between last December and February this year, Nicholas Tian Weijie, 28, dishonestly used his father's credit cards and brother's cheque books to rack up $36,850 worth of stolen property.
He bought 14 iPhones of various models, food, movie tickets and even a copy of The New Paper.
This morning (Dec 2), Tian was jailed 27 months after pleading guilty to 99 charges, including seven counts of criminal misappropriation of property, four counts of theft and 64 counts of cheating. Sixteen of the charges were proceeded with.
