POLICE APPEALS FOR SHOP THEFT CASES, PHOTOS OF 15 PPL RELEASED

The Police are seeking the public’s assistance in our investigations into cases of theft in dwelling that took place at various retail chains, including Watsons, NTUC FairPrice, Sheng Siong, and Cold Storage. These cases took place between 4 April 2023 and 15 March 2024.

The individuals captured in the Closed-Circuit TV cameras (CCTVs) (refer to the Annex) installed by the retailers are required to assist in the investigations of these cases. 

Technology has changed how crime is detected and reported. In the past, it was common for persons involved in shop theft to be discovered in the act, at the time of the offence. With the increased presence of CCTVs within the retail premises, retailers can now review their CCTV footages and lodge police reports should they believe that theft had been committed within the premises.  

A person convicted for an offence of theft in dwelling under Section 380 of the Penal Code 1871 may be punished with an imprisonment term of up to seven years and shall also be liable for a fine. 

The Police take a serious view of shop theft cases, and offenders will be dealt with firmly in accordance with the law. The public is strongly advised against committing shop theft. With the prevalence of technology such as CCTV cameras, you will be caught eventually even though you manage to leave the store with the stolen items. The Police would like to encourage all retailers to come onboard the Shop Theft Awareness for Retailers (STAR) programme. Retailers are encouraged to take preventive and deterrent measures to safeguard their businesses against shop theft.

Anyone with information about the incidents referred to in the Annex or other alleged offences is requested to call the Police Hotline at 1800-225-000 or submit information online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
