On Monday (20 May), police arrested a 22-year-old man in Singapore for his alleged involvement in pawning a fake gold ring.

Prior to the arrest, the man had attempted to pawn the accessory for more than S$1,000.

The accused will be charged in court today (21 May) for cheating.

Man purportedly wanted to pawn fake gold ring for S$1,050

In a news release on Monday (20 May), the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said it was alerted to the case by a pawnshop last Thursday (16 May).

SPF did not share further details regarding the shop’s name or location.

The incident, which occurred on 14 May, involved a customer who allegedly pawned a gold ring for S$1,050.

However, the gold ring was suspected to be inauthentic due to its low gold density.

Officers from Jurong Police Division later identified the man through follow-up investigations.
