A 47-year-old woman lodged a Police report alleging that a car she had rented was stolen after she parked it along Havelock Road on 22 March 2018 at 8.26 pm.
In the course of investigations, officers from Tanglin Police Division detected many inconsistencies in the woman’s account and established that she had provided false information by claiming she was a victim of car theft.
Investigations are ongoing.
Anyone convicted of giving any information which he knows to be false to a public servant shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to one year or a fine which may extend to $5000, or with both.
The Police would like to remind the public that police resources could have been put to better use in dealing with real crimes and emergencies than investigating into false reports or false information. Those who lodge false police report or provide false information will face serious consequences under the law.
