Long arm of the law catches up with R&R crime duo

PETALING JAYA: Two men were nabbed by police 12 hours after they broke into a vehicle parked at the Sungai Buloh R&R.

The suspects had earlier evaded arrest by driving against traffic when their vehicle was spotted by police at Kota Damansara after the break-in was reported at 7.25am on Sunday. But their freedom was shortlived as police caught up with them and apprehended the two suspects, aged 25 and 31, at 6.50pm on the same day.

The suspects had broken into the car at the R&R and escaped with RM300 cash and a few personal documents, said Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal.

He said the older suspect has a criminal record for 18 offences, six of them drug-related, and is also wanted over a drug-related case in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.

He said police also seized various tools, and items stolen from the vehicles they broke into.

“The suspects also admitted to several vehicle break-ins at the same R&R. We believe, with the arrest, police can solve at least 15 break-ins at the R&R, ” he said.

Both men have been remanded for four days, he added.

Meanwhile, in another case, a man in his 40s was detained for allegedly breaking into a car at Dataran C180 in Cheras.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan said the man was detained at about 12.30am on Sunday with the help of bystanders.

“The suspect has a criminal record for 20 offences, including breaking into vehicles and theft, ” he said.

Police are investigating the case as theft.
