SINGAPORE: Two men were charged in court on Thursday (May 2) for their alleged roles in an armed gang robbery involving more than S$4.34 million (US$3.19 million) in cash, cryptocurrency and other valuables.

"A group of more than four men had robbed 11 victims, aged between 25 and 45, of various valuables, including cash in local and foreign currencies, cryptocurrency and luxury brand watches, with an estimated total value of S$4.34 million," SPF said.
Officers established the identities of the men involved through ground enquiries and found that the group had fled to Malaysia shortly after the police were alerted to the case.
