Casino crimes: 8 arrested

Indonesian tourist stole mobile phone after losing money at casino

After gambling and losing the $1000 he had brought to the Resorts World Sentosa casino, an Indonesian tourist resorted to theft.

49-year old Paulus Djohar has been sentenced to 4 weeks' jail for the attempted theft of a $500 cellphone.

He followed 18-year old student Lim Tse Min from behind at Changi Airport and took the phone from her backpack.

He was caught red-handed by pre-school teacher Ng Ming Zhu, who immediately alerted the victim.

The two confronted Djohar and made a police report.

He could have been jailed up to three years and/or fined for theft.
