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.
