Costly 10-minute tea stop for trader


KUANTAN: A 10-minute tea break turned out to be a costly stop for a trader when he lost RM13,000 worth of cellular telephones and other equipment from his car in Jalan Air Putih here. 

State CID deputy chief (II) Deputy Supt Rokiah Mohd Hashim said the 47-year-old cellular telephone salesman had stopped for a drink in a restaurant on Monday at 8.15pm. 

When the man returned to his car, he was shocked to find the front window on the driver’s side smashed and one of the tyres flat. 

“He found his bag missing. It contained handphone sets, prepaid cards, starter packs and RM1,000 in cash,” DSP Rokiah said. 

In another case, an 18-year-old youth was attacked by seven men riding on four motorcycles while he was walking home during a downpour at noon on Sunday. 

DSP Rokiah said the seven men, in their 20s, approached the youth in Taman Esplanade in Teruntum near here, and demanded money from him. 

When he refused, he was beaten and kicked by the men who fled with his wallet containing RM150, she added.
