IPOH: Police here believe they have solved 12 burglary cases with the arrests of three people, including a woman, at a house in Meru Valley, here.

Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz said the arrests of the trio, aged between 38 and 48, were made at a double-storey house at about 4.30pm on Sunday (Jan 5).

ACP A. Asmadi said the police also seized 34 items during the arrest, including a white-coloured Honda City, mobile phones, jewellery, bags, watches and tools believed to have been used for break-ins.

"Based on a tip-off, we raided the house and made the arrests," he told a press conference at the district police station here on Wednesday (Jan 8).

"One man jumped off from the top floor to escape and broke his feet," he said.

"With their arrests, we have solved 12 cases in Bercham, Ampang Baru, Jelapang, Kampung Rapat, Chemor, Tambun and Menglembu," he added.

ACP A. Asmadi said all three suspects were friends, with the two men having previous records for various crimes.

"The 48-year-old man, from Pasir Putih, Kelantan, has 14 previous crime cases and is a Prevention of Crime Act (Poca) detention escapee in June last year.

"The 38-year-old man, from Kampung Kapor, Enggor, Perak, has three previous cases while the 41-year-old woman, from Skudai, Johor, does not have any crime records," he said.

He said their modus operandi involved using the car to go around residential areas, including at gated and guarded areas, before breaking into houses in the evening.

"It's not easy to get into some gated and guarded communities. They may have impersonated as contractors," he said.
