A Defence Science and Technology Agency scholar who stole bras from his neighbour and university hostels was given a 12-month mandatory treatment order on Thursday.

Research engineer Jonathan Peh Song Wee, 26, was found to have 228 bras at his Ang Mo Kio home - all of which were suspected to have been stolen or fraudulently obtained.

He had admitted to five charges - criminal trespass, theft and fraudulent possession. Another eight were taken into consideration during sentencing.

A Community Court heard that Peh, who graduated from Nanyang Technological University in June last year, stole his neighbour's two sports bras worth $110 at the common corridor at a block of flats in Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4 last August.
