Police investigations are ongoing.

If found guilty of theft, the man can be sentenced to up to three years imprisonment, fined or both.

On May 20, a 26-year-old man was arrested for stealing underwear from a residential unit along Pasir Ris Street 12.

Preliminary investigations on both instances revealed that the men were involved in other similar cases in their respective areas./TISG
