Yishun Ave 9: 36-year-old Man Burglars From Homes Undergoing Renovation


A 36-year-old man might be responsible for the spate of home appliance thefts from HDB flats undergoing renovation. The units affected were all using numbered locks to secure their gates.

Patrolling police officers noticed the suspect behaving suspiciously at a block of flats in Yishun Avenue 9, so they tailed him to what was eventually one of his crime scenes. He was caught with cash and handphones he couldn't account for and was swiftly arrested.
