He tossed burning tissue paper onto a parked car and caused $28 in damages. For that act, loanshark runner Rain Chia Kuan Guan was handed a jail sentence of two years and three months.

Although the damage to the car was minimal, the district court found that it was a dangerous act as a fire could have damaged other vehicles.

The 25-year-old was caught by the car owner at 10pm on June 20, minutes after the crime. The odd-job worker admitted being told to do so by a loan shark after being handed to the police. He had become a runner as he was unable to repay a debt.

Chia was given a separate jail sentence of one year and three months, as well as three strokes of the cane, for scribbling loan-shark warnings outside a flat in Ang Mo Kio. The offences all took place in June, during which he also committed several traffic violations and harassed debtors.

He was fined a total of $2,800 and disqualified from driving any vehicle for a year, after colliding into a centre divider along North Canal Road on June 6. He also admitted yesterday to driving carelessly and driving without a licence and insurance.
