A man who vandalised property at the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, and threatened and hurt one of its officers was jailed and ordered to be caned on Thursday for a series of offences.

Loh Chien Wei had also bribed a cop by entertaining him at a nightclub; abetted one of his co-conspirators to falsify accounts; and committed traffic-related offences.

The 37-year-old former tattoo shop operator admitted to 11 of 24 charges. He was sentenced to a total of 12 months and one week in jail, and ordered to be given six strokes of the cane.

He will also be banned from driving for 12 months, for driving without a licence in 2007 and 2012.
