KUALA LUMPUR: A Bangladeshi man has been arrested over a string of break-ins at Sri Petaling.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Zairulnizam Mohd Zainuddin@Hilmi said a police team led by the Sri Petaling police station chief conducted an operation on Monday (Oct 19) following the break-ins.
"The team came across a Bangladeshi man behaving suspiciously near Jalan Radin Bagus at around 5am and arrested him.
"We checked the suspect and found screwdrivers, bolt cutters, pliers, a pair of scissors, a metal rod and a spanner in his bag believed to be used for the break-ins," he said in a statement on Tuesday (Oct 20).
He said the suspect confessed to committing a number of break-ins around the Sri Petaling area.
"We checked his residence and found various goods including 46 cans of drinks, a number of soap refills, four packets of face masks, 11 bottles of chilli sauce, food items, sweets and four boxes of aluminium foil, and an electric fryer.
"We believe the items seized were all stolen from the break-ins of a sundry shop and two restaurants here recently," he said, adding that the 27-year-old suspect did not have any documents on him and has been remanded for two weeks to help with further investigations.
Anyone with information on crime activities should contact the Brickfields police hotline at 03-2297 9222, or go to the nearest police station.
