According to details revealed in a series of tweets, the incident occurred on Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018.

A video and four photos showing the incident and the culprits were tweeted with an appeal for information.

The culprits appear to be a couple.

They can be seen in the video walking towards the exit of the fast food joint past a two-seater table and swiping an unattended black bag from one of the seats before casually walking out.

The eatery appeared to be full of people dining when the incident occurred.

One lead

The first tweet appealing for help was posted on Jan. 22.

By Jan. 23, the appeal was met with at least one response with a lead:

On Jan. 16, one day before this alleged Jollibee theft occurred, CNBC published a demonstrating Singapore’s low crime rate by letting its reporter leave his valuables unattended in Lau Pa Sat food centre while he went to order food.
