S’poreans react to 2 men arrested for stealing S$500,000 from Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre fruit stall

Posted on 07 January 2016

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Two men who are holding Vietnamese passports were arrested on Jan. 5, 2016, at a hotel along Bayfront Avenue after they allegedly stole about S$500,000 in cash from a safe located in a fruit stall at Pasir Panjang Wholesale Centre.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) said they caught the suspects at 10.30pm on Tuesday night, within 16 hours of the stall owner making a police report.

The suspects had arrived in Singapore on Jan. 1.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “I also want to sell fruits.”
Shui Guo, 44-year-old unemployed


sian-half-uncle “It is not right to steal the fruits of other people’s labour.”
Tou Dong Xi, 62-year-old ex-convict


happy-bird-girl “With that amount of money, you can afford to buy half an HDB flat.”
Cheng Hu Chu, 17-year-old student
