A woman in her 40s has been arrested in relation to the case of theft in dwelling at the waterfront bungalow at Sentosa Cove which took place on Sunday morning. She is now assisting with investigations, police said.

It is believed that the woman knows the man who lives in the house and is either a Singaporean or a permanent resident here. The Straits Times understands that a luxury watch worth $27,000 was stolen.

On Sunday, police received a call at around 9am requesting for assistance at the luxury waterfront bungalow along Ocean Drive. It had later been established upon arrival that the issue involved theft in dwelling, said the police. This means that something was allegedly stolen inside the bungalow.

This house was in the news in 2010 when a 24-year-old Chinese national who was moonlighting as a KTV hostess drowned in the swimming pool of the multi-million-dollar bungalow along Ocean Drive. It was later ruled an accident.
