    • SINGAPORE: An Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp (OCBC) automated teller machine (ATM) was found damaged on Monday.

      Located at Bukit Batok East Avenue 3, the ATM had its external cover pried open.

      However, the inner core of the ATM was not damaged as the culprit was not able to break through it.

      No money was taken.

      Channel NewsAsia understood from bystanders and shopkeepers in the area that the culprit had taped up the CCTV with masking tape.

      The culprit then proceeded to pry open the ATM between 4pm on Sunday and 6:30am on Monday.

      As there is more than one CCTV installed near and around the ATM, the culprit's face and actions were all recorded.

      No arrests have been made yet.

    • Man arrested for allegedly trying to steal from ATM

      SINGAPORE: Police have arrested a 41-year-old Chinese man for attempted theft from an OCBC automated teller machine (ATM) at Bukit Batok East Avenue 3.

      Officers arrested the man on Thursday at 4.30pm, after spotting him at Admiralty Link in a manhunt operation.

      Police say they had established the suspect's identity from close circuit television (CCTV) images and evidence gathered at the scene of the attempted theft, together with extensive ground enquiries.

      In a statement, police said on Monday at about 7.30am, they were informed that the external cover of an OCBC ATM along Bukit Batok East Ave 3 was found open.

      They were also informed that two CCTV security cameras were covered with masking tape.

      No cash was missing from the ATM.

      Police said preliminary investigations indicate that the suspect had tampered with the ATM on Sunday and Monday.

      In its operation on Thursday, police retrieved two T-shirts, a pair of jeans, a face mask, a pair of gloves and a roll of white tape, believed to have been used to commit the offence.

      The accused will be charged in court on Saturday for attempted theft.

      If convicted, he faces a jail term of up to three years, a fine, or both.

      Police said a court order will be sought to remand him for further investigations.
