SINGAPORE - Three men and woman suspected of stealing more than $120,000 worth of foreign currencies from a money changer near Syed Alwi Road were arrested in Malaysia last Friday (Aug 21).

The theft were allegedly committed by the quartet - aged between 30 and 59 years old - on Aug 12, said the Singapore Police Force (SPF) in a press release on Sunday morning. The money was in a bag on the counter.

Having established their identities, the SPF then worked with the Royal Malaysia Police to apprehend them. They were extradited back to Singapore the day after their arrest.

Cash amounting to more than $15,000 in different currencies were found on them.

They will be charged in court on Monday for Theft in Dwelling with Common Intention, which is punishable with a jail term of up to seven years and a fine if convicted.
