PETALING JAYA: Two men detained after fleeing from police in a Proton Waja have been remanded until Tuesday (March 2).
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the suspects have been remanded for four days.
"We will investigate the matter further. Both suspects tested positive for drugs," he said when contacted on Saturday (Feb 27).
It was reported that the Proton Waja driver, known as "Bob Mah Sing" was nabbed in Shah Alam while his accomplice was detained in Desa Aman on Friday (Feb 26).
This was after they rammed their car into several vehicles to avoid being caught by police in Sungai Buloh.
Videos of the incident, where the police were forced to fire shots at the Waja's tyres in an attempt to disable the vehicle, went viral on social media and WhatsApp.
ACP Nik Ezanee had said that both had criminal records, Bob having 20 priors while the other suspect had been involved in eight offences.
On Friday, patrol cars from Gombak chased the Proton Waja from Kampung Desa Aman to the Sierramas roundabout in Sungai Buloh.
"Policemen instructed the two men in the vehicle to exit but they refused and rammed into several vehicles to escape," ACP Nik Ezanee had said.
He said police were forced to fire shots at the vehicle in a bid to stop it.
"The suspects ditched their vehicle along Jalan Kuala Selangor - Sungai Buloh after it suffered a puncture.
"K-9 and Forensic units managed to detect 1.7g of heroin in the vehicle," he said.
ACP Nik Ezanee also urged those with information on the incident to contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or the nearest police station.
