KOTA TINGGI: The police have arrested four men, including two teenagers, believed to be responsible for 30 motorcycle thefts around the district.
Kota Tinggi OCPD Supt Hussin Zamora said that the four suspects, who are between the ages of 17 and 32 years old, were arrested between July 29 and Aug 5.
"The group has been actively stealing motorcycles to sell off spare parts since January this year.
"They would then dispose off the remains of the motorcycles by burying it around a hilly area in Felda Bukit Waha or in a pond nearby," he said.
He added that some 18 motorcycle remains valued at RM120,000 were found at Felda Bukit Waha following the arrest of the suspects.
