Serial shoplifters who stole more than $30k worth of goods arrested
More than $30,000 worth of stolen goods were seized from two suspected serial shoplifters on Thursday (Nov 13), according to a police statement.
Following multiple reports of shop theft in the Orchard Road and Novena area received since July, police were able to narrow down their search and identify the pair - a 39 year-old man and a 35 year-old woman - through their investigations.
Police made their move on Thursday and arrested them at a home in the Sembawang area.
More than 100 items including branded handbags, wallets and sunglasses believed to have been stolen were recovered from the unit, with estimates placing their value at more than $30,000.
