MRT vandal accomplice on the run from arrest warrant
A arrest warrant has been issued for Briton Lloyd Dane Alexander, the man suspected to be an accomplice of the Swiss national charged with vandalising an MRT train in Singapore.
In a statement released late Monday evening, the Police said that, in consultation with the Attorney-General's Chambers, it applied for the arrest warrant and this was granted by the Subordinate Courts.
It added that Alexander remains at large.
It has been revealed that he left Singapore before the incident was reported to the police.
Swiss national 33-year-old Oliver Fricker has been charged with vandalising an MRT train by spraying graffiti on it and damaging public property by cutting a wired fence.
He was released on Monday after posting S$100,000 bail. It is believed his passport is still impounded to prevent him from leaving the country.
The incident was said to have taken place between late night of May 16 and early hours of May 17 at the Changi Depot. SMRT reported the incident to police only on May 19.
Fricker, a business consultant who worked in Singapore, was arrested on May 25.
Reports said his accomplice, Alexander, may have fled to Hong Kong.
Vandalism is punishable by up to three years' jail or a maximum fine of S$2,000, plus three to eight strokes of the cane.
Fricker is scheduled to appear in court again on June 21.
