Cops arrest four in connection with four-wheel drive vehicle thefts


SEREMBAN: Police believe they have solved the theft of five four-wheel drive vehicles after arresting four suspects.

State police chief Dep Comm Datuk Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussof said his men had also recovered two stolen vehicles from the suspects.

"We carried out two operations in Cheras and Sg Buloh in Selangor on May 21 and recovered two vehicles that had been reported stolen.

"The group would target four-wheel drive vehicles parked in residential areas," he said in a statement here on Friday (May 24).

DCP Ahmad Dzaffir said two vehicles, one in Negri Sembilan and Selangor and one in Kuala Lumpur, were reported stolen.

The vehicles, he said, cost some RM750,000.

He said police also seized electronic equipment and special tools used to steal the vehicles from the suspects aged 30 to 43.

"Checks showed that the suspects have 54 police records related to car theft, house break-ins and drug abuse.

They are being probed under Section 379A of the Penal Code.

"We have remanded the four for four days," he said.

DCP Ahmad Dzaffir said police were looking for the remaining members of the gang.

"We urge those with information related to the cases to contact the district police station," he added.
