Fifth teen in rooftop vandalism case pleads guilty

Fifth teen in rooftop vandalism case pleads guilty
Goh Rong Liang admitted to four out of five charges – one each of vandalism and theft and two charges of criminal trespass.

AN 18-YEAR-OLD yesterday admitted to spraying graffiti on the rooftop walls of a Toa Payoh housing block, becoming the last of five teens in the case to plead guilty.

Goh Rong Liang admitted to four out of five charges - one of vandalism, another of theft, and two others of criminal trespass.

So far, only one of the teens, David William Graaskov, 18, has been dealt with.

He was placed on 15 months' probation last month for theft and trespass.

Three others - Reagan Tan Chang Zhi, Chay Nam Shen and Boaz Koh Wen Jie - have pleaded guilty but have not been sentenced.

Tan and Chay will be back in court early next month while Koh has been remanded pending progress and reformative training reports on Feb 18.

Yesterday, the court heard that Goh was with his friends on May 6 last year when he saw a lorry that was carrying cans of spray paint in the carpark of Block 54, Toa Payoh Lorong 5.
