A mobile phone store at Greenridge Shopping Centre in Bukit Panjang was broken into at around 4am yesterday (May 19).

Stomper Mikey, who is the area manager of Mobile 8 Singapore, alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos showing the shop's broken display glass.

He told Stomp that eight iPhones, one Xiaomi phone and one Huawei phone worth $12,000 in total were taken from the store.

Mikey said:

"There is a security guard at the shopping centre for 24 hours a day, but he did not notice the incident or heard anything.

"Police were alerted to the incident by the mall's security guard at around 6am and came down to our shop to take a statement.

"We wish to spread awareness with help from Stomp, so as not to let the public or mobile shop owners fall victim to this guy if he tries to sell off those stolen sets in any way."

The Stomper has also listed on Facebook the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) numbers of the stolen devices.

In response to media queries by Stomp, the Police said that they were alerted at 5.30am to a case of housebreaking by night and theft at 524A Jelapang Road.

Investigations are ongoing.
