PETALING JAYA: A married couple were shocked to find an unknown vehicle parked in their driveway and became even more terrified when they realised thieves had entered their house in broad daylight.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the couple had just returned from shopping for Chinese New Year and found their front gate wide open.
"They had locked it before leaving at 1.30pm on Tuesday (Jan 21) but when they came home around 2.20pm, they saw their gate open and a silver vehicle parked on their driveway," he said.
ACP Zani said the couple tried to use their car to block the intruders from leaving but the thieves repeatedly rammed into their vehicle, forcing their way through to make their escape.
The couple lost several items in the burglary, including a notebook computer, a mobile phone, a gold ring, a laptop bag, several bottles of whisky and over RM2,600 worth of foreign currency.
A video of the incident has also gone viral on social media, showing the intruders' car and the license plate number.
ACP Zani said that the police have since determined that the licence plate number is fake.
The case is being investigated under Section 427 for causing mischief and causing damage amounting to RM25,000 and Section 457 for trespassing and housebreaking.
