Two teens arrested for string of vandalism cases in Jurong

The police have arrested two 14-year-old boys believed to be involved in a series of vandalism cases in Jurong West earlier this month.

Similarities in at least three vandalism cases led police to suspect that the same culprits were behind the offences. The duo were arrested Thursday afternoon near Jurong West.

Anyone convicted of vandalism may be liable for a fine of up to $2,000 or jailed up to three years. They may also face between three and eight strokes of the cane.

Investigations are ongoing, said the police in a press release on Friday.
