Enough evidence in noodles containers theft

The Committal Court at Waigani has found overwhelming evidence that a former employee of Nestle stole five containers of noodles worth K430,711 last year.

Warren Koaba was arrested and charged for false pretense and dishonestly applying properties of his employer, Nestle, between June and September last year in the Eastern Highlands Province.

The court in its ruling found there was sufficient evidence the containers of noodles went missing while they were being moved from a yard in the Eastern Highlands Province by the accused, who was the area sales manager then.

The five containers allegedly went missing from the Mapai Transport yard during transportation under the supervision of Koaba.

Documental evidence consisting of the police investigation files, Koaba’s record of interview, as well as  time sheets of the movement of the containers, were all used by Magistrate Cosmas Bidar in assessing the totality of the evidence before the court.
