Five Arrested For Stealing Spree

Police arrested two men and three women, aged 22 - 37 at the airport yesterday after they were found with nine pieces of luggage containing more than 350 pieces of new garments.
Based on police inquiries, a search was conducted on the five Vietnamese nationals while they were checking-in at Terminal 1 at about 4pm yesterday.
An assortment of branded apparels, with their price tags still on, was found in their possession. The five were unable to give satisfactory accounts of where they had obtained the clothing items and were then arrested.
Preliminary investigations revealed that about 30 of the items in their possession were found to be stolen from shops in the Orchard area. The items are valued at over S$20,000/- and police are expecting more victims to come forward. Efforts to verify the owners of the remaining items are underway.
The group will be charged in Court 26 on 12 July 2007 for Theft in Dwelling with common intention under Section 380, read with Section 34 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224.
Superintendent Teo Chun Ching, Commander Airport Police Division commended his officers for their vigilance in detecting the group.
He also added that criminals who plan to come into Singapore to commit crimes should think twice as his officers will continue to maintain a high state of vigilance to safeguard the lives and properties of the public.
