Police have arrested a 19-year-old male for his suspected involvement in loanshark activities in Clementi, police said in a statement.

Officers spotted the youth behaving suspiciously near an Automated Teller Machine (ATM) around Clementi Ave 3 on Saturday. They arrested him after they found loanshark-related paraphernalia, including a mobile phone containing debtors' records, three ATM cards and five ATM transaction receipts, on him.

Preliminary investigations found that he is not a debtor, but had been assisting loansharks by carrying out electronic fund transactions.

Investigations are ongoing.
