Cops move in on another Sim Lim Square shop
Police officers raised another mobile phone retailer at Sim Lim Square this afternoon, the second time it has done so at the building in recent months.
Several policemen in plain clothes were seen entering the shop, known as Mobile Apps, at about 12.50pm and the shop shut its doors soon after.
At about 2pm, two officers were seen bringing a trolley with boxes into the shop.
Three men, believed to be owners and staff of the shop, ran out of the shop, shielding their faces. All three scattered in different directions.
This happened at 2.55pm.
7 complaints in 3 months
Mobile Apps has seven complaints against it in the past three months, according to a consumer advisory notice issued by the Consumers Association of Singapore (Case) and the Singapore Tourism Board.
This is the second time that police have taken action in recent months against a shop at Sim Lim Square, following the raid of errant retailer Jover Chew's Mobile Air last month.
Plain clothes policemen were also seen removing electronics such as tablets and phones, as well as documents from his shop.
