4th teen gets probation for vandalising rooftop of Toa Payoh block

SINGAPORE - A teenager has been placed on 21 months' probation for his role in spray-painting graffiti on the rooftop of a block of flats in Toa Payoh.

Goh Rong Liang, 18, had admitted to four charges - one for vandalism, another for theft, and two others for criminal trespass.

He committed the offences with Boaz Koh Wen Jie, Reagan Tan Chang Zhi, David William Graaskov and Chay Nam Shen.

Goh was the fourth, along with Graaskov, Chay and Tan to be placed on probation.

Koh's case will come up for mention again in May, said The Straits Times.

The Straits Times reported that the group had stolen four cans of spray paint from a parked lorry in Toa Payoh Lorong 5, on the night of May 6, last year.

Except for Graaskov, the other four proceeded to the rooftop of Block 85A at Toa Payoh Lorong 4, where they vandalised the walls by spraying expletives against the People's Action Party.

The five had also trespassed on the premises of Marina Bay Suites in Marina Boulevard on March 29, 2014.

According to The Straits Times, as part of his probation, Goh will have to remain indoors from 10pm to 6am and perform 160 hours of community service.
