PETALING JAYA – Two luxury cars, worth RM800,000, reported missing in Taman Subang Height on June 19, were found at a hotel in Klang, on the same day.
Subang Jaya District Police chief ACP Yahya Ramli said an Audi Q7 and Bentley, owned by a businessman, were found on different levels in the same premise in Pandamaran and the theft was believed to have been done by a syndicate.
“The cars were found on the second and third floor in the building. We do not rule out that the syndicate has a group responsible for stealing and storing the cars.
“There is also another group whose task is to dispose of the cars such as placing them in containers and exporting them,” he told a media conference here, today.
Commenting further on the modus operandi of the syndicate, he said the suspects entered the victim’s house by prising open a window on the ground floor and taking the car keys in the victim’s room on the second floor in the incident at 5 am.
He said a recording of the closed circuit television at the victim’s house showed two men and police believed the case involved more than four people.
Yahya also said the cars were detected, via Global Positioning Satelite installed in the cars, at 6.30 am on the same day.
“A police team monitored the building for five hours. But the syndicate seemed to be aware of their presence and did not turn up to take the car.
“We decided to take away the cars at 11.30 am, on the same day it was reported missing,” he said.
In another case, a contractor lost RM95,000 after his two cars, a Chevrolet Cruise and Suzuki Swift, parked in front of his house in USJ 11, Subang Jaya,
were stolen last night at 9 pm.
“The criminals broke in by cutting the padlock of the grille door and entered the house via the main door, which was unlocked, to take the car keys.
“The victim realised his cars were missing at 7 m today after finding the main door ajar,” said Yahya.
No arrests have been made and police are still investigating the case. -BERNAMA
