A man who was widely condemned for the death of a traffic policeman was sentenced to 18 months in prison for alleged crimes, including threatening his girlfriend with sex videos, stealing underwear and shoplifting.
Thomas Chua Poh Heng, 40, whose occupation is unknown, pleaded guilty to six charges last month and considered eight similar crimes in sentencing.
On June 4 last year, he was captured by the staff of the Mustafa Center and stole a bottle of perfume worth S$98.
Around 5 am that day, security guards at the Little India Mall noticed that the perfume part sounded an alarm. They saw Chua and began to track him.
Chua soon began to get out of the woods, but was called by a security guard. He then came out of the Mustafa Center but was eventually detained by security guards outside.
Chua took the perfume bottle out of her trouser pocket and claimed that he wanted to pay.
Threatened girlfriend with sex video
The court also heard that Ms. Cai took the POSB Go from his girlfriend! The debit card belongs to someone called Lin Zhong.
His girlfriend, 36, found a debit card at the ATM at the Vista Point shopping mall in Woodlands on April 26 last year and wanted to return the card to the bank.
But Chua took the card from her and intended to use it.
On the same day, he went to two nightclubs in Geylang and spent more than S$1,000 (RM3,015.29) on alcoholic beverages.
The next afternoon, Chua sent a threatening text message to his girlfriend – unable to name it due to a court order – told her not to report the case to the police. The court documents said that he said: “If you have reported or divulged anything about me… I make sure you are super famous, even more than porn stars or anyone.”
Then, he sent her a video of nearly two minutes to let them have sex.
The court was told that the video was taken with her consent a few days ago and that the woman was identifiable in the clip.
It is not clear whether she reported the case to the police.
