Suspects in spa burglary arrested

KUALA LUMPUR: Three men, including two with criminal records, were arrested along with a woman on suspicion of having broken into a spa and beauty shop in Sri Hartamas resulting in losses amounting to RM32,700.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said the arrest was made following a Jan 2 report lodged by a 32-year-old woman, who claimed her shop was broken into and equipment and products were missing.

The suspects, he said, were arrested at separate locations following operations conducted between Jan 8 and Friday.

The first suspect, a 38-year-old man with 13 criminal and drug offences, was arrested in Damansara on Jan 8. Police confiscated a mobile phone and a bank card from him.

“He claimed to have leased his bank card to a man identified as Ah Hoo for RM1,200 and the suspect was released on Friday, ” he said in a statement yesterday.

Police arrested a 35-year-old man with a criminal record in Pekan, Ayer Hitam, and confiscated a bag, two cheque books and two mobile phones. The man confessed to being involved in the case and was charged in court on Friday.

ACP Anuar said the other two suspects, a 33-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man, were arrested in Setapak and Jalan Gombak.

“Various items suspected to be stolen, including a television, electric stoves, water heaters, vacuum cleaner, and house-breaking tools were seized, ” he said, adding that the two suspects were remanded until Tuesday. — Bernama
