Police are investigating a spate of thefts from cars in Hougang Central.

At least six are thought to have been targeted in the vicinity of Block 830A, with at least one break-in reported this weekend.

Car owner Francesca Chia, 24, told The Straits Times how her husband was greeted with broken glass when he went to get their vehicle at about 4pm on Sunday.

The window next to the driver's seat had been smashed and the CashCard in the in-vehicle unit was missing, she said.
