The men would pluck the ripe mangoes from the trees near Block 629 Bedok Reservoir Road and place them into bags or containers. When confronted, they claimed to be RC members.
STOMPer Ong, who took these photos, said:
"Every time the mangoes outside Block 629 Bedok Reservoir Road are ripe, there are people who claim to be from the RC who would come and pluck the mangoes.
"I asked them once, and they told me they were RC members.
"They would always arrive with containers and plastic bags.
"I would like to know, if the mangoes do belong to the RCs, does that give them the privilege to pluck the mangos?
"Looking at the fat mangos below, I have a feel it's unfair because I have not got to taste the mangoes before."
According to him, the plucking has been going on since last year, and it has become more frequent lately.
