SINGAPORE — The police arrested a 26-year-old man on Wednesday (May 20) for allegedly stealing female undergarments in Pasir Ris.

In a news release on Thursday, the police said that they had received a report on May 10 informing them that underwear hung outside a residential unit along Pasir Ris Street 12 were stolen.

Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from police cameras, officers from the Bedok Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on May 20.

Preliminary investigations by the authorities revealed that the man is believed to be involved in other similar cases in the vicinity.

“An assortment of more than 25 undergarments found in his possession were seized,” the police said.

If convicted, the man faces a jail term of up to three years, a fine, or both.

The police said that they are also looking at possible breaches of safe distancing measures committed by the man under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020.

Investigations are ongoing.

Earlier this week, a 39-year-old man pleaded guilty in court to 10 charges of theft, criminal trespass, unauthorised access to computer material, as well as breach of Covid-19 regulations.

Lee Chee Kin, a serial bra thief, was found to be in possession of more than 100 bras and 41 pairs of panties when he was arrested by the police in July last year.

The court heard that Lee had selected the underwear "based on their appearance", climbing over back gates and entering laundry areas to take them before climbing back out.

Sentencing for Lee has been adjourned till June 1.
