Dear A.S.S. Editor

A 39 year old man has been sentenced to 14 months in jail for stealing petrol and other drug related offences. The man, named as William Tan, is a driver with Uber and Grab, using a rental car at the time of the offences.

He was arrested by the Police on 23 May, after numerous reports of petrol thefts at Sengkang and Yio Chu Kang stations. Tan had apparently stolen licence plates of other cars, and placed it on the Toyota Altis that he was driving, to cover the actual licence plate of his rental car. He then proceeded to pump petrol and driven off without paying for the petrol.

Police have reminded motorists that failure to pay for the petrol they had pumped into their cars are tantamount to theft, and carries a jail term of up to three years and a fine.
