Man Arrested In Singapore For Stealing 500 Pokemon Cards

In Singapore, a 22-year-old man was arrested for having around 500 stolen Pokemon cards. He reportedly took the cards from four stores in the city in May. He was caught on May 9 when he returned to one of the stores. The report was confirmed by South China Morning Post (SCMP).


“The man was found in possession of an opened box of Pokemon cards that did not belong to him,” the Singapore Police Force said in a Facebook post on Monday.

The police said that the rest of the Pokemon cards were taken on three different days: May 2, 4, and 8. 

They looked at video footage and talked to people who saw what happened. This helped them link the man to the other three times the cards were stolen. Because of this, he was officially accused of stealing on Tuesday.

The police shared several pictures of the cards they took but didn’t say how much all the stolen cards were worth together. It’s important to mention that Pokemon trading cards have become worth money since the pandemic.

Cards that are very rare and in good condition can sell for a lot.

In April 2022, a record was set when Logan Paul bought the most expensive Pokemon card ever sold. He spent an incredible $5.275 million, wow recorded by the Guinness World Records.

This increase in value has even influenced the market for sports memorabilia. 

For instance, in September, Michael Jordan’s ‘Last Dance’ jersey was sold at an auction for an extraordinary $10.1 million. 

His basketball shoes were also sold for $2.2 million, breaking previous records.
