SINGAPORE: A woman took to social media to appeal for help after a thief took a tablet from their Bedok restaurant, posting a video.
Ms Tran Thi Ngoc Giau wrote on the COMPLAINT SINGAPORE Facebook page on Tuesday (Jul 25) that the theft had occurred shortly after midnight at Ăn Là Ghiền, a Vietnamese restaurant located at 527 Bedok North Street 3 #01-514.
“If there anyone know him, please ask him to return it back to us within one week, otherwise, we will report the case to police to take action,” wrote Ms Tran, adding, “Please call Yuki at 88589587 if any know him. thank you.”
She added a translation of the post in Vietnamese.
In the one-minute and 22-second video Ms Tran posted, a man dressed in long pants and a long-sleeved polo shirt with a bag across his body walked unevenly down a hallway while holding a plastic bag.
He limps into the interior of a building through an open doorway and then walks through what looks like a kitchen area into the restaurant proper.
Once inside, he can be seen turning on a tablet, quickly picking it up, and walking away. But he hesitates before going through the door as if listening to ensure no one else is about.
He waits momentarily and then slips the tablet into, or at least behind, his bag. The man then leaves the same way he came, holding his bag over his face this time.
The Independent Singapore has reached out to Ms Tran Thi Ngoc Giau for further updates or comments.
This is not the first time a thievery like this has occurred this year. In April, one hawker stall owner also took to social media after a mobile phone was stolen from his establishment, which resulted in shoppers being temporarily unable to use e-vouchers from the CDC. /TISG
