A female patient was arrested over the weekend for allegedly stealing a BMW car left at the carpark at Mount Elizabeth Hospital at Orchard Road that reportedly belongs to a 63-year-old oncologist who works at the hospital.

The doctor had driven her car into the Basement 2 carpark of the hospital last Friday afternoon. Seeing that there were no available lots, she stopped her car to one side and left the key in the ignition before leaving, so that a valet service staff could park the car when a lot became available.

The doctor returned close to 2 hours later, only to find that her car had been stolen. The valet service staff then recounted that her car had been driven off by a woman.

The doctor lodged a police complaint around 4pm and officers from the Tanglin Police Division recovered the stolen car abandoned in Scotts Road, near Newton MRT Station, within 30 minutes of the report.

Officers were able to determine the suspect’s identity using surveillance footage and arrested the 42-year-old patient around 11am the next day at the Holiday Inn Express Singapore Katong in East Coast Road.

It is believed that the suspect is not a patient of the oncologist.
