Two men with multiple priors on their criminal records arrested at police roadblock


BALIK PULAU: A man with 43 priors on his criminal record and was just released from prison in September last year found himself being hauled up by police again on the first day of the movement control order.

The 34-year-old man was arrested with a friend, also 34, while driving back to their house in Batu Kawan near here at about 1am.

His acquaintance also has 19 offences on his record related to drugs and other crimes.

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt A. Anbalagan said the men have since been released after they tested negative for drugs.

"The first man, who was driving the car, was issued a summons and advised to follow road and safety regulations.

"The two men were earlier arrested after police found that the car they were riding in did not have a road tax when stopped at the roadblock near the second bridge in Batu Maung, Bayan Lepas.

"When he was arrested, the man's reason for being in the area was that he needed to send cookies in the Batu Maung area and was on his way back to his house," he said.

Supt Anbalagan said upon inspecting the car, they did not find any suspicious objects and the two were detained for documentation process and a urine test at the Bayan Baru police station.
