JOHOR BARU: Johor police believe they have solved several theft cases involving luxury cars with the arrest of two syndicate members in Masai last Monday.  

Police raided a house in Jalan Tasik , Bandar Seri Alam, at 6.30pm and arrested a 36 year-old man. They seized a Naza Kia MPV reported stolen in Batu Pahat. 

Deputy Johor Baru OCPD (South) Superintendent Idris Ismail said police also picked up two youths, aged 19 and 16, hiding in the house. One of them was later released. 

“The team found a box containing various tools used to prise open cars such as screw driver, duplicate keys, knife, wire and glass cutters. 

“We also found several registration number plates and a record of sales. We believe the syndicate was involved in at least 20 car thefts. The cars were sold at rock bottom prices,” he said yesterday. 

Supt Idris said among cars targeted by the group were Toyota Unser, Mitsubishi Storm, Toyota Altis, Toyota Harrier and Proton Waja. 

Police are looking for Lau See Hwa, 28, to assist in investigations. Those who know of Lau's whereabouts or have any information on him may call 07-223 2222 or the nearest police station.
