Police catch thief

A manhunt. In Singapore. Involving more than 400 soldiers and policemen.

Who are they after?

3 guys, with a pistol and a pump action gun (according to Channel NewsAsia) or one shotgun and two handguns (according to The Straits Times). They stole 10,600 ringgit or S$5,300 --- or less than most unarmed conmen in Singapore make off with these days, in exchange for a simple promise of magic rocks or cures for arthritis.

Stay tuned for more details. Or just be like me and keep hitting 'refresh' on the news webpages.

Armed men, loose in Singapore (okay, on Pulau Tekong, which is technically off the mainland --- but still). This hasn't happened since the '80s, I'll bet.
