Two Certis Cisco auxiliary police officers entrusted with transporting cash for bank machines helped themselves to the money instead and were jailed on Tuesday for dishonestly misappropriating $146,900.

Palwinder Singh Harjan Singh, 21, and Theywa Subramaniam, 27, pleaded guilty to criminal breach of trust committed at Plaza Singapura, Orchard Road, on Sept 17 last year.

Theywa, who also admitted to money laundering, was jailed for 36 months, while Palwinder's sentence on the single charge was 30 months. Both are Malaysians.

The two ex-constables were attached to the organisation's security transport unit, which is in charge of replenishing money at ATMs in Singapore.
