SINGAPORE — A 34-year-old man who uploaded multiple posts on social media of him sniffing allegedly stolen female undergarments has been arrested, said the police on Friday (16 August).

The police said that he was arrested for his suspected involvement in a case of public nuisance at about 4.30am on Friday, less than eight hours after receiving the first of multiple reports on three Instagram posts uploaded by the man.

The man, who goes by Wei Ming Lim, had also uploaded a photo of a pair of stolen black shorts, along with a caption claiming that he had ejaculated on it and hung it back where he took it at Choa Chu Kang Street 51.

“This is three days’ worth of load,” the caption said.

While some of the photos have been taken down, one of him sniffing allegedly stolen female undergarments at an HDB block in Tampines remains on the man’s Instagram account, which has over 870 followers.

His latest Instagram story post, tagged under “Holding Cell” at around 4pm on Friday, was captioned with: “Will be updating, follow to find out.”

The man will be charged with public nuisance in court on Saturday.

If convicted, the suspect may be fined up to $1,000.
