This guy is brilliant. Our not so clever ICA police look foolish. He crashed the barrier about 4pm+.
But the abandoned car was only found at 9pm+.
Now the advantage is on his side. SG police got to prove that he was carrying narcotics.
You notice that so far SG can only charge him with: Rash Act & Vandalism.
No person in his right mind crashes the barrier just for fun.
The drug dealer must have got rid of the evidence. He can hire expensive lawyer to defend him.The police said a package suspected to be drugs was also recovered from the operation.
After the driver crossed the Causeway, two men - both Malaysians - said to be associated with the driver, were approached by police to help with investigations while they were separately leaving Singapore for Malaysia.
After the driver was arrested, two other Singaporeans were also brought in to assist in investigations, from within Singapore.
The police are investigating the driver for offences including evasion of customs, vandalism and possibly drug-related offences.
Say, for example he gets a $1,000 fine for Rash Act & Vandalism. Another $100,000 bill for the expensive lawyer.
That is small change to a drug dealer.
That is a far cry from Death Penalty.
