We posted the story of Batman bin Suparman's name some time ago. Now it appears that the crime-fighting moniker has had little influence on his life. A judge in Singapore sentence Suparman to two years and nine months on charges of breaking and entering, theft, and heroin use. It all started when his older brother reported $650 missing from the bank account behind his ATM card.
Investigations then revealed that Batman, 23, who is jobless, had stolen the ATM card from their home in Depot Road so as to make the withdrawals.
On the night of Aug 9, he broke into the office of GF Billiards & Marketing in Depot Road. He then stole $200 from the $430 placed in a drawer, probably in the hope that the missing amount might not be noticed. That was not so. An employee checked the surveillance video footage and saw that a thief had forced open a window to enter the premises.
Batman bin Suparman was arrested on August 19th. If he had taken some inspiration from his name, he might have tried wearing a mask or at least using a secret identity. Read the rest at Singapore Now. -via Arbroath
