A group of Vietnamese targeted retail outlets like Zara, Pull and Bear and H&M in Orchard Road on January 27 and 28.
One of the shoplifting syndicates, Dang Bich Thao aged 25, was charged in Court on Thursday (4 Feb) for stealing from 3 clothing shops in ION Orchard.
The group of 5 is accused of stealing over 200 cloth items worth over $9,000 from H&M outlet alone.  They allegedly also stole 28 items like printed tops, T-shirts, pants, dresses and a jacket valued of around $2,000 from Zara.
Dang Bich Thao, Nguyen Quoc Hung, Hoang Dinh Cong, Nguyen Thi Luong and Dinh Ngoc Luan looted items like tube tops, dresses, blouses, denim skirts, bags and knitted sweaters, worth over $17,500.
This is not the first time Vietnamese gangs have targeted businesses in Singapore. It was reported in 2007 that a gang of 5 Vietnamese came to Singapore with four empty large luggages and haversacks and left with the bags full of assorted branded garments worth about $48,600. The gang was banned in Changi Airport during a spot check.Follow us on Social Media
