IPOH: A robber broke into a businessman's house in Jalan Watson here and took nothing except for the owner's prized Bentley car.
Ipoh Deputy OCPD (I) Superintendent Anuar Othman said the suspect, who had an accomplice, broke into the house through a grille door and searched for the keys to the car in the 4am incident Friday.
"The owner had gone to check upon hearing noises coming from the ground floor of his house and saw a stranger in his living room.
"He quietly followed the suspect out into the porch where the accomplice was waiting. They got into the Bentley, which is worth an estimated RM1.2mil," Supt Anuar said, adding that the victim was in his 50s.
He added that while starting the car engine, the suspect noticed the owner and tried to ram him.
"The owner fired three warning shots into the air, prompting the suspect to make his escape by ramming the gate while his accomplice got away by climbing over the perimeter wall.
"We appeal to those who come across a grey Bentley with a damaged front to contact the nearest police station," he said.
