SINGAPORE - A 39-year-old man has been arrested for stealing motorcycle accessories in a series of thefts in Hougang and Sengkang.

Victims made police reports on Monday (Aug 14) and Tuesday, saying motorcycle accessories had been stolen in Hougang and Sengkang estates.

The Straits Times understands that at least five victims had accessories such as volt meters and gear indicators stolen.
