On 24 November 2022 at about 4.20am, the Police were alerted to a case of housebreaking at a residential unit along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4. A pair of slippers outside the said unit and a T-shirt from the neighbouring unit were purportedly stolen. Through follow-up investigations and with the aid of images from Police cameras, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on the same day.
The man will be charged in court on 25 November 2022 with housebreaking under Section 451 of the Penal Code 1871. The offence carries an imprisonment term of up to 10 years and shall also be liable for a fine.
The Police would like to advise all property owners to adopt the following crime prevention measures:
- Secure all doors, roller shutters, windows and other openings with good quality grilles and closed-shackle padlocks when leaving your premises unattended, even for a short while;
- Refrain from keeping large sums of cash in your premises; and
- Install a burglar alarm, motion sensor light and/or close circuit surveillance camera to cover the access points into your premises. Ensure that they are tested periodically and are in good working condition.
