PETALING JAYA: An official vehicle belonging to a high-ranking policeman that was stolen in Kajang last week has been recovered almost 150km away in Perak.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said the black, multi-purpose vehicle of Bukit Aman Narcotic Crimes Investigation Department (NCID) director Comm Datuk Seri Mohmad Salleh was recovered in Teluk Intan at about 5pm on Monday.
“A team from Hilir Perak CID found the vehicle parked behind a building in Taman Melor Sejati. The vehicle has been brought to Hilir Perak police district headquarters,” he said.
So far, no arrests had been made, said SAC Fadzil, adding that the police had already recorded a statement from Comm Mohmad’s driver.
“Initial investigations revealed that there were no CCTVs at the location of the incident. We do not believe that this theft is meant to challenge the police,” he said.
The vehicle was reported stolen from the parking lot of a restaurant in Kajang last week.
It was learnt that Comm Mohmad’s 31-year-old driver had noticed the theft after having dinner at about 8pm.
He had earlier driven the vehicle back from a service centre in Jinjang, enroute to Negri Sembilan.
