An ah pek who was on a high after winning S$1000 at the Marina Bay Sands got a rude shock the next morning to find that a woman he picked up for a wild night made off with his cash and jewellery worth S$6388.
Chew Siong Heng, an ah pek in his 60s, was leaving the casino when he was approached by 47-year-old divorcee Fu Xiang.
The two had earlier exchanged smiles, and Fu approached him offering him a “massage service”, saying she was hunger and had no money.
Chew and Fu checked into a hotel room at the Geylang Hotel 81 at about 3.25am and had sex, after which Chew fell asleep.
Fu then stole his thick gold chain, 2 gold rings and S$2000 in cash and fled.
But, she did leave him S$50, which she placed in his shirt pocket.
The incident took place in November 2013, and Fu was arrested in 2016 during a random police check.
Unfortunately, Chew never got to see his valuables again – he died 2 weeks before trial started.
Fu, a divorcee with 2 children in their 20s, has been convicted of theft and jailed for 4 months.
