The Police have arrested a 38-year-old woman for her suspected involvement in a series of shop theft cases at Changi Airport. 

On 21 February 2024, the Police were alerted to a case of theft after a belt valued at over $800 and cosmetic products amounting to more than $170 were discovered missing from two retail outlets located in the transit area. Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from closed-circuit television (CCTV), officers from the Airport Police Division established the identity of the woman. However, the woman had left Singapore shortly after she purportedly committed the crime. 

In April 2024, the woman returned to Singapore and was arrested by the Police. Preliminary investigations revealed that she had allegedly stolen cosmetic products amounting to more than $400 on the same day of the arrest.

The woman will be charged in court on 16 April 2024 for the offence of theft in dwelling under Section 380 of the Penal Code 1871. The offence carries an imprisonment term of up to seven years and a fine.

The Police take a serious view of shop theft cases and offenders will be dealt with firmly in accordance with the law. The Police will continue to work closely with stakeholders and the community to prevent and deter shop theft cases.
