Apparently, a second person was involved in the Cpl Teo incident. Ong, 21, unemployed is said to be charged by the police for having met Cpl Teo and is assumed to know that the latter had a weapon with him. Was talking to Endoh over MSN and he thought that Ong’s probably as good as being an accomplice.

Here’s the rest of the article… but.. who’s Ong?

A full-time national serviceman, Dave Teo Ming, 20, was charged in court on Wednesday with carrying a firearm.
Another man, Ong Boon Jun, 21, was also charged. Ong, unemployed was accused of consorting with Teo at a hotel in Geylang.

No plea was taken from Teo, who was remanded together with Ong.

Teo, a corporal, is said to have unlawfully carried the SAR 21 assault rifle at a toilet on the third floor of Cathy Cineleisure Orchard at about 8pm on Sunday.

He went missing on Sunday night, sparking off a 20-hour manhunt which culminated in his arrest the following evening.

Ong is alleged to have associated with Teo at Champagne Hotel in Lorong 16 between 3.45am and 7.30am on Monday in circumstances which raised a reasonable presumption that he knew that Teo was carrying the firearm.

Both men will appear in court again next Wednesday.

Teo was represented by lawyer Abdul Aziz Yatim.

    Somehow, I feel that they are good friend and Ong is trying to get Dave to surrender. My guess only.

    I feel sad for Dave. What made him do such an act that’ll destroy his future…

    National Service…. one after the other… Good luck to all our servicemen serving the Nation!
