Malaysian UNGERIN anti-terror-police

Police have arrested a 23-year-old Malaysian man who is believed to be responsible for at least 15 cases of theft of credit cards island wide.

Since February 2011, Police received several reports of unauthorized credit-card transactions made in Malaysia from victims in Singapore. In these cases, the victims would receive alerts from banks pertaining to transactions made in Malaysia using their new or replacement credit cards which the victims have yet to receive.

Following the reports, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division conducted extensive investigations and ground enquiries. The officers’ efforts paid off when they managed to establish the identity of the suspect. On 15 June 2011, with assistance from the Royal Malaysian Police, the suspect was arrested in Johor Bahru and extradited to Singapore. Preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect was previously employed as a postman and is believed to have stolen the credit cards from undelivered mail.


 

The suspect will be charged in Court for the offence of Theft as a Servant under Section 381 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224 which carries a mandatory jail term of up to seven years and fine.

Commander of Ang Mo Kio Police Division, Assistant Commissioner of Police (AC) Hsu Sin Yun, expressed his appreciation to the Royal Malaysian Police for their assistance in this case. He also commended his officers for their perseverance and good investigative work. AC Hsu added,

“This case highlights our strong collaboration with the Royal Malaysian Police. Individuals who think that they can evade arrest after committing a crime in Singapore are greatly mistaken. Police will spare no efforts to ensure that they face the full brunt of the law.”
