On Oct 4, a 28 year-old man was arrested on a suspected count of serial bicycle thefts.
Last month, several victims reported their bikes stolen from bicycle bays of private condominiums in Bukit Timah.
Police arrested the man at Woodlands Rise, after intensive investigations on Oct 3.
The thief is believed to have stolen bicycles around the island. For his crimes, he will be charged under Section 379 of the Penal Code, chapter 224, and detained for further investigations.
If convicted, his sentence could be a three-year jail and fine.
It is hereby advised that you should care of your bicycle well. Use U-locks for portable protection or purchase higher quality bike locks. Price is not the problem when safety’s the tradeoff.
