PETALING JAYA: Police seized a list of number plates of vehicles used by the Home Ministry and Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry when they raided a distribution centre for pirated video materials in Taman Universiti here. 

The list contained the number plates of 31 vehicles used by personnel from the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry's head office and its Kajang office and five vehicles used by Home Ministry personnel. 

OCPD Senior Asst Comm II Datuk Ghazali Md Amin said police were studying the list and would contact the two ministries for assistance. 

During last Thursday's operation, headed by Insp Syamsul Bahrin Ahmad, police had to force their way into a building when several people inside refused to open the door at 7.30am. 

When the police got in, the occupants had already fled through the back door. 

“We seized over 21,700 pirated VCDs and DVDs worth RM118,000 as well as the list of number plates and confiscated a van,'' SAC Ghazali said at press conference on Tuesday. 

He said police believed a syndicate had used the premises to distribute the pirated materials to traders in the Klang Valley. 

Police, he added, had identified some of the syndicate members and were tracking them down. 

SAC Ghazali appealed to the public to help locate Loi Teck Lee (IC No: 821007-08-5157), whose last known address is 262, Simpang Lima, Sitiawan, Perak. 

Those with information can contact the district police headquarters at 03-7956 2222.
