THEIVING COURIER TAKES PHOTO AS DELIVERED THEN STEALS UNDER CCTV

In Singapore, the act of a courier taking a photo as proof of delivery and then stealing the item is considered theft. Theft is defined as the act of dishonestly moving moveable property out of the possession of any person without that person’s consent, with the intention of taking the property out of the possession of the person. The courier’s actions would fall under this definition, as they have moved the item out of the possession of the rightful owner without their consent, with the intention of taking it for themselves.

The penalties for theft in Singapore include imprisonment for up to 3 years, a fine, or both. If the theft involves a motor vehicle, the penalties are more severe, with imprisonment for up to 7 years, a fine, or both.

Additionally, if the courier uses fraudulent means to gain access to the property or to deceive the owner into thinking that the item has been delivered, they may also be charged with cheating. Cheating is defined as dishonestly causing loss to another person by deceiving them, and carries a penalty of imprisonment for up to 5 years, a fine, or both.

In this case, the courier’s use of the photo as proof of delivery would likely be considered a deception, as it is intended to mislead the owner into thinking that the item has been delivered and is no longer in the courier’s possession. Therefore, the courier could potentially be charged with both theft and cheating.
