'MCKOY BANOS' admits train damage
Oliver Fricker, 32, was sentenced to the minimum three strokes from a rattan cane and five months in prison after he pleaded guilty to breaking into a Singapore train depot last month and spray-painting graphics and the words "McKoy Banos" across two carriages.
A warrant of arrest has been issued for Briton Lloyd Dane Alexander, the alleged accomplice of Swiss national Oliver Fricker, who has been charged with vandalizing an MRT train at SMRT's Changi depot.
In a statement released yesterday, the police said that they had consulted the Attorney-General's Chambers and applied for the arrest warrant which was granted by the Subordinate Courts.
Alexander is said to have fled to Hong Kong before the incident was reported to police on 19 May.
Fricker was released on Monday after posting a S$100,000 bail. His passport has been impounded to prevent him from leaving the country.
