IPOH: It was a case of bad luck for two thieves who tried to break into a high-ranking police officer’s house. One of them was caught at the scene.
The police officer is based in Penang but owns a double-storey terrace house in Taman Falim Indah in Menglembu, near here.
Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Sum Chang Keong said the 21-year-old suspect was caught red-handed around 2am yesterday outside the unoccupied house, while his accomplice managed to escape.
ACP Sum said police personnel, together with help of Rela and Rakan Cop Community members, rushed to the house following a tip-off.
Arriving at the scene, they noticed that the grille door to the house had been forced open.
When they approached the house, two men tried to escape, but the team gave chase and caught one of them.
ACP Sum said initial investigations revealed that the two men had arrived in a black Wira Aeroback, driven by the runaway suspect.
The case is being investigated under Section 448 of the Penal Code for trespassing.
