Another thieving TikTok challenger of the “devious licks” trend has emerged.

A video circulating online today showed two unmasked girls dislodging a metal railing from an elevator as part of the viral trend challenging TikTok users to steal or vandalize public property. The video was originally posted by a user known as Kxshfia, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment today. 

“[A]bout to hit the most devious lick,” said the video caption, referring to the slang for theft. The clip is no longer available on TikTok but is being shared elsewhere online. 

It is not clear when the video was originally uploaded or whether it is being investigated by the police. 

Singaporean police appear to be cracking down on this crime trend after announcing on Tuesday that they were investigating two teenagers aged, 15 and 14, for taking part in the challenge. They had allegedly stolen signage naming the Kaki Bukit train station and another one reminding the public against littering at Jalan Songket, respectively. Both incidents were reported Sunday. 

The viral TikTok challenge began earlier this month after an American user known as Jugg4elias filmed himself stealing disposable masks from his school. Several teenagers have been arrested for theft and vandalism in the U.S since the trend took off. 

TikTok said last week that it was working to take down devious licks challenge videos to “discourage such behavior” while asking users to “be kind” to schools and teachers.

If found guilty of vandalism in Singapore, one can be jailed for up to three years, fined S$2,000 and caned eight times.
