The police are investigating nine men and three women, aged between 20 and 30, for alleged non-compliance with safe distancing measures after they were found having an illegal social gathering.
The police said they received information on June 15, at around 12.35am, that an unlicensed KTV was in operation at Woodlands Industrial Park E1.
When officers arrived, they found 12 people allegedly socialising at the location.
Public entertainment and liquor were also believed to have been provided at the unit without a valid licence.
Karaoke equipment, liquor bottles and beer cans found at the unit were seized for investigations.
A 30-year-old man, who was among the group of 12, is believed to be the unit's operator and will be investigated for supplying liquor without a valid licence as well as for providing public entertainment without a licence.
"All 12 persons found in the location will also be investigated for non-compliance with safe distancing measures under the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020," the police added.
The offences of supplying liquor and providing public entertainment without a valid licence, each carry a fine of up to $20,000.
"Members of the public are advised to take the prevailing safe distancing measures seriously," the police reminded.
"The police take a stern view of irresponsible behaviours relating to the flouting of safe distancing measures and offenders will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
"For non-compliance with safe distancing measures under the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020, offenders may be jailed for up to six months, fined up to S$10,000, or both."
