The Singapore Police was informed by the Royal Malaysia Police at about 08:45am that they were pursuing three men on board a motorised sampan and the sampan had landed at Pulau Tekong. The men are suspected to have earlier committed armed robbery in Johor. The Singapore Armed Forces and the Singapore Police Force are jointly conducting a search for the three persons on the island. Security measures have also been stepped up on the island. About 700 soldiers and policemen are combing Pulau Tekong for three armed robbers. All training on the island has been temporarily suspended to facilitate the search operations. All three were caught and were charged with illegal entry and possession of firearms.
