Lai Kim Fah, 59, admitted to misappropriating the headphones that he found in the back seat of his taxi last year (2016) on Sept 19. The headphones, which were valued at $699, belonged to Ms Sarah Safa Sherry, 31.
Investigations showed that Lai found the headphones when he was handing over his taxi to another driver at the end of his shift, and later gave it to his daughter. He then admitted to taking the headphones when police questioned him. The daughter had sold the headphones on Carousell, but managed to get it back after refunding the money back to the buyer. The headphones were handed over to the police.
