26-year-old woman arrested for attempting to bribe police officers during anti-vice raid

SINGAPORE - A 26-year-old woman has been arrested on Wednesday for attempting to bribe three police officers during an anti-vice raid.

At about 10pm on Wednesday, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division conducted an anti-vice raid at a residential unit around Wellington Circle in Sembawang.

During the raid, five men and three women were found in the unit. The women were believed to have offered sexual services illegally to the men and were arrested.

When two of the officers were interviewing the 26-year-old woman on the cash amounting to $2,349 found in her possession, the suspect offered all the money to the two officers for them to let her go. The officers rejected that offer.

But after that, she requested to speak to a female officer and made the same offer to her. Again, it was rejected and the suspect was placed under arrest for attempting to bribe the police officers.

The Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau (CPIB) is investigating the suspect for attempting to bribe the police officers.

Police investigations against the three female suspects are ongoing.
