OFFICERS from the Ang Mo Kio Police Division arrested a 41-year-old man on Thursday in connection with at least five cases of rental scams.

The suspect, who owns the flat, had arranged with the victims to view the unit and thereafter collected deposits and rental advances.

 

The suspect surrendered after the police issued an appeal for information through the media, seeking the whereabouts of Dennis Ang Beng Kiat to assist with investigations into at least three cases of flat rental scams reported at Blk 123 Rivervale Drive.

The suspect, who owns the flat, had arranged with the victims to view the unit and thereafter collected deposits and rental advances.

But after receiving the money, he became evasive and was uncontactable.

The police said the suspect was believed to have been persuaded by a friend, among others he knew, who saw the appeal to give himself up.

Preliminary investigations indicate that besides the three cases committed at Rivervale Drive, the suspect is believed to be responsible for two other similar cases at Indus Road and Tampines.
