A Malaysian influencer has been jailed for stealing £18 worth of food from a supermarket – including broccoli.
Rumaisyah Yahya, 31, was jailed for a day and fined RM400 (£70) after being found guilty of theft.
The pretty influencer was also caught with air freshener, soap and toothpaste.
According to her lawyer, Rumaisyah, who is also a yoga teacher, stole the goods “out of necessity.”
After putting the items in her bag, she walked to another part of the supermarket before leaving the supermarket without paying.
She was then stopped by a security guard who discovered she had shoplifted.
Lawyer Muhammad Rhastdan Abdul Wahab asked the court for leniency, saying his client does not have a stable income and supports a 65-year-old mother.
He also said that Yahya stole the items out of necessity and it was her first offense.
He said: “The client is remorseful and asks to be given a second chance.”
However, deputy prosecutor Sheryn Yong Shi Yee reportedly asked the judge to make an example of her.
However, Judge Nurul Izzah Shaharuddin took into account the defense’s pleas and sentenced Yahya to one day in prison and a £70 fine after she pleaded guilty.
The court also ruled that if she fails to pay the fine, she will serve a three-day prison sentence.
Yahya, who has since deactivated her Instagram account, had more than 200,000 followers on the social media platform.
