Western Union Robber Caught: He Robbed $4K & Dropped $3K

Okay, a robbery is a serious issue, especially so in Singapore when it is so rare.

It’s no joking matter but one can’t help but laugh when we realized what happened to this robber.

A few days back, Singaporeans were shocked to learn that a Western Union has been robbed. Unlike the Standard Chartered robbery, this robber was armed with a knife.

He escaped on that day, and people called him the storm-trooper robber because all they had was this image.

Today, it’s reported that the robber is caught.

Before anything, let’s give credit to the police officers who worked around the clock to nail the suspect, a 56-year-old Singaporean. He was arrested last night (3 August 2017) along Pasir Ris Dr 6.

So, here are the facts that would make you laugh or cry.

Firstly, he robbed a totality of $4,000. Then, like a scene from a comedy, he dropped almost $3,000 outside the robbed outlet on a carpark.

Next, when he was arrested, all the $1,000 he was left with were gone.

Yeah, $1,000 gone in two days. $24 were spent on 4D, which we didn’t know if he won or not, but it doesn’t matter, does it?

The irony of this is that if convicted, he would face a jail term of two to ten years, and up to 12 strokes of cane.

If anything, here are two takeaways: don’t rob, and don’t gamble. You’ll eventually end up with nothing.
