21 Y.O MAN ARRESTED: FORGERY AND LIE TO PUBLIC SERVANT

The Police have arrested a 21-year-old man for his suspected involvement in a case of criminal breach of trust, providing false information to a public servant and forgery.
 
On 17 January 2024, the man had lodged a police report alleging he was a victim of a Government Official Scam where a sum of around S$230,000 was withdrawn from his next-of-kin’s bank account. The man also produced a letter from the Police claiming that it was handed over to him in the vicinity of Ang Mo Kio by one unknown male Chinese subject. 
 
Through follow-up investigations, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division discovered discrepancies in his account. He eventually admitted to lodging a false police report and forging the letter. The man had allegedly spent the money which was entrusted to him by his next-of-kin for his personal use, hence he fabricated a story to account for the missing monies. 
 
The man will be charged in court on 9 May 2024 with the offence of criminal breach of trust under Section 406 of the Penal Code 1871, which carries an imprisonment term of up to 7 years or with fine or with both. The offence of giving false information under Section 182 of the Penal Code 1871 carries an imprisonment term of up to 2 years or with fine or with both. The offence of forgery under Section 465 of the Penal Code 1871 which carries an imprisonment term of up to 4 years or with fine or with both.

The Police would like to remind the public that Police resources could be put to better use in dealing with real crimes and emergencies than investigating into false reports or false information. Those who lodge false Police reports or provide false information will be dealt with sternly in accordance with the law.
