2 men arrested for stealing diamonds at S’pore Int’l Jewellery Show

SINGAPORE: Police arrested two men suspected of stealing two diamonds at the Singapore International Jewellery Show 2010 at Marina Bay Sands Singapore.

They were arrested at about 2.10pm on Thursday.

Police said officers from Central Police Division were conducting anti—crime rounds at the show and spotted the two men behaving suspiciously at one of the booths.

One of them was seen talking to an exhibitor while the other appeared to be taking something from the booth.

Both men left hurriedly after that.

The officers immediately gave chase and detained them outside the exhibition hall.

Two diamonds with a total value of about S$10,000 belonging to the exhibitor were found on one of the suspects.

The two men, aged 39 and 42 years, will be charged in court on Saturday.

In a separate case earlier at the show, a 43—year—old Filipina was arrested on suspicion of attempted theft.

Police said she was seen following visitors of the show closely and was believed to have attempted to steal from their bags.

She will also be charged in court on Saturday. — CNA/vm
