KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): An army captain who was involved in a break-in at shop a year ago was arrested after he burgled another shop selling designer handbags in Berjaya Times Square two weeks ago.

Dang Wangi district police chief ACP Mohd Fahmi Visuvanathan Abdullah said police investigations revealed the man was desperate to pay off online gambling debts so he broke into the shop and stole branded handbags.

He then sold them to another handbag store.

“On May 3, at 11am, a luxury brand handbags' shop owner in Berjaya Times Square lodged a police report when he found his shop ransacked and several branded handbags, including Channel, Hermes and several others, had been stole," he said.

According to Mohd Fahmi, after looking at a closed-circuit television camera recording at the scene of the crime, the police managed to apprehend the suspect, in his 30s, on May 9 at the Sungai Besi army camp. – Bernama
