We’ve all been taught since a young age that stealing is bad.

I’m looking at you, Megan Fox. How many hearts have you stolen?

No matter if it’s a small amount of cash to something like a phone, you shouldn’t be going around nabbing other’s stuff.

But of course, there’s always the few that want to try their luck.

And if you give in to those itchy-finger urges, just know that the law is always not far behind you.

2 Teens Arrested For Allegedly Stealing Jewellery From Shop in Woodlands

The law won’t discriminate based on your age, either.

Two 17-year-old boys have been arrested as suspects in stealing from a jewellery shop along Woodlands Drive 44.

On 21 Feb, around 5.45pm, the police got a report that the two had stolen from the shop before fleeing.

However, their identities were quickly exposed through police cameras and getting evidence on the scene.

Within 12 hours from the report, the two boys were arrested.

Investigations for the case are still ongoing, and the reason for committing the crime is still unknown.

If found guilty, the boys face will be charged for theft in-house and can face up to seven years of jail, a fine or both.

As always, the best solution to not get caught for stealing is to not steal in the first place.

Not even if you’re a public figure.

The Miss Universe Contestant Incident

Unfortunately, another stealing case involved an even more famous individual.

Former Miss Universe Singapore Contestant Ashley Rita Wong Kai Lin, 27, has been sentenced to six weeks’ jail.

She had used her friends’ debit cards to spend $2,000 online without permission.

Wong pleaded guilty in December 2020, to four charges of unauthorised access to materials on a computer, amounting to roughly $1,000 in total.

It began in 2016 when she went out with a friend.

When he left his wallet on a table, she took out and memorised his debit card details, later spending over $700 online.

Wong would later admit to the crime when the friend found out.

Another incident saw her use the same tactics on a female friend to pay for hotel accommodations, costing around $264.83.

This friend, upon attempting to make an online purchase, found her account to have insufficient funds.

All of this was eventually traced back to Wong, who again admitted her crimes when confronted.

The hotel refunded her friend the full sum and Wong made full restitution to the hotel.
