    since your friend got the IC, just go to police and they will take care for him. IC got address, easier to track.

    What phone? Let me guess... iPhone4. Like that hor, must look in Geylang and Joo Chiat, that's where the thieves hang out and sell goods.

    How did you manage to get the passport size photo of the culprit? A scan from the NRIC?

    As your friend is suspicious of him, why did he still lend him his hand phone ?

    You may have his pink IC but wouldn't having your own hand phone safe and sound in your pocket be better than risking it for his lousy IC ?

    Now the hand phone is gone. Most likely the IC is fake or not his.
    If I am your friend, I will move away from him and stop talking to him at the bus stop.
