KULIM: Two men had to abandon their Proton Wira that had been modified for cattle rustling after it broke down in Kampung Siam, Sungai Seluang, Lunas, near here.
The car with the back seat removed was loaded with four cows rustled from a cattle farm in Sungai Lembu, Bukit Mertajam.
Kulim deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Chin Soo Song said the farm owner lodged a report on the missing cattle at the Lunas police station at 5am yesterday.
“The thieves had taken the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway in making their escape. But after the Lunas toll plaza, they came across members of the public who were helping the owner to find the animals.
“They then accelerated but their car broke down a short distance away, forcing them to abandon the vehicle,” he told reporters here.
DSP Chin added that the public and a team from Pertubuhan Perihatin Kemasyarakatan Daerah Kulim found the animals at 7am in Kampung Siam, about 15km from where they were stolen.
Those with information on the thieves are urged to contact Kulim CID chief Asst Supt C. Tharmalingham at 04-490 6222 or the nearest police station. — Bernama
