IPOH: Police detained three youths including a 16-year-old girl on Monday after they had allegedly stolen a car for a joy-ride a day earlier. 

OCPD Asst Comm Ismail Abdullah said they were arrested in Jalan Labrooy at about 4.45am on Monday after they were spotted by a patrol car. 

However, he said a fourth youth, who was also in the car, escaped. 

ACP Ismail said the car, a Toyota Corona, was reported stolen in Jalan Kuala Kangsar by its owner on Sunday.  

ACP Ismail said the girl, a Form Four student from Tanjung Rambutan and the two boys aged 15, from Jelapang were remanded for two days. 

“However, we have released them on police bail after questioning them,” he said. 

He said investigations showed that the youngsters were not involved in any other car thefts prior to the incident. 

He also said the girl came from a broken family.  

Police were looking for the fourth youth, who is from Kg Manjoi, he added.  

ACP Ismail urged parents to monitor the movements of their teenage children and to ensure they did not stay out until the wee hours of the morning, as they could get involved in mischievous acts which were against the law. 

In another case, police believe they have solved at least six armed robberies in Pasir Puteh here with the arrest of a 25-year-old drug addict. 

ACP Ismail said based on a tip-off, the man was arrested while he was about to board a bus to Kuala Lumpur on Sept 12.
