Neighbour smashes Yishun resident's CCTV cameras with hammer after he complained about potted plants in corridor

SINGAPORE - Stomp reader Richard's neighbour damaged the CCTV cameras he had outside his flat at Yishun Ring Road Block 137 with hammer on Saturday (Mar 8).

The Stomp reader also said that the neighbour has smashed his window and burned his CCTV camera with a joss-stick on previous occasions over a dispute about placing potted plants in the corridor.

Richard only recently moved into this flat, and saw that neighbours on both sides of the unit had placed lots of plants along the corridor when he went to view the place.

"Even the space outside my flat was taken up, and I was unable to place my own things or plants there. So I reported the issue to Town Council", said Richard.

He added that Town Council then followed up with the issue, and told him that they had told both neighbours to remove their items and plants from outside his flat.

However, Richard noticed that only one neighbour complied with this, but one did not and his items and plants remained where they are.

He said, "When my flat was being renovated, the contractor called to saw that one of my windows had been smashed, and advised me to make a police report."

"After I moved in, I installed two CCTV cameras along the corridor, both watching the two windows along the corridor.

But on Thursday (Mar 6), the neighbour tried to burn the camera with a joss-stick.

And on Saturday (Mar 8), CCTV footage shows him smashing the cameras with a hammer he was carrying.
