12-month conditional warning for 3 Australian schoolgirls arrested for shoplifting from Orchard Rd mall; 3 others get 'stern warning'
The Singapore Police Force on Wednesday (Nov 23) said that it had given a 12-month conditional warning to three teenagers who were allegedly involved in a case of theft at a mall along Orchard Road earlier this month
They were part of a group of six Australian schoolgirls who were arrested by the authorities here on Nov 13 for allegedly shoplifting from Victoria's Secret and Crocs stores
The police on Wednesday said that the three other girls were given a stern warning
Conditional warnings typically contain the condition that the suspect must remain crime-free for a period ranging from one to three years after its issuance
The authorities reserve the right to prosecute the suspect for the original crime for which he or she was warned, as well as for any fresh offences
