Sentosa Cove theft: Woman arrested

Sentosa Cove theft: Woman arrested

A WOMAN in her 40s has been arrested in relation to an incident of suspected theft in a Sentosa Cove waterfront bungalow.

Police said the woman is assisting with investigations. 

The Straits Times understands that the woman, who is either a Singaporean or a permanent resident, knows the man who lives in the bungalow. 

It is believed that the theft involved a Bvlgari watch valued at about $27,000.

The police said they received a call requesting assistance at the Ocean Drive bungalow at around 9am on Sunday. They later classified the incident as allegedly theft in dwelling.

Neighbours said the man moved into the bungalow less than a year ago, and lives alone.

This is not the first time the bungalow has been in the news. In 2010, a 24-year-old Chinese national who was moonlighting as a KTV hostess in Singapore drowned in the property's swimming pool. 

A coroner's report ruled that her death was due to an accident.

The maximum penalty for the offence of theft in dwelling is seven years in jail and a fine.
