Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from Police and CCTV cameras, police officers from Bedok Police Division established the identity of the two men and arrested them on 12 August 2022. Improvised screwdrivers, a black tape and zip lock bags were seized as case exhibits. Preliminary investigation revealed that the two men are believed to be involved in similar cases islandwide.
