2 GERMANS CHARGED WITH SMRT TRAIN VANDALISM

Two German men were charged this morning (Nov 22) with trespassing and vandalism at SMRT Bishan Depot earlier this month.

Andreas Von Knorre and Elton Hinz, both 21, appeared before the State Courts and had their charges read in German through an interpreter.

The Court heard that both men had on Nov 8, at about 2.48am, entered the Bishan SMRT Depot at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 without authorisation and vandalised the left exterior cabin of an SMRT train using indelible spray paint.

If convicted, both men may get up to S$2,000 fine, three years’ jail and eight strokes of the cane for the vandalism charge, and fined up to S$1,000 and imprisoned two years for the trespassing charge.

Both men will be remanded at Tanglin Police Division for one week to assist in investigations and reenact the scene. They will next appear in court on Nov 26 and 10am.
