End of the road for Gang Matmi duo, cops recovered stolen items, vehicles



(24.10.2016) Police believed they have crippled a gang of thieves known as 'Gang Matmi' following the arrests of two men, aged 24 and 39, in Puchong, Selangor on Tuesday.

District Criminal Investigations Department chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Hamzah said the gang were known to specialise in vehicle theft and house break-in activities.

He said the duo were nabbed by Subang Jaya police at an area in Puchong at 6.30pm.

They were inside a pickup truck, reported stolen in Marang, Terengganu three days earlier.

Abdul Aziz said the victim, a 48-year-old contractor had lodged a report on Oct 15 that his Mercedes Benz and Toyota Hillux, parked outside his house were stolen by two thieves at 5.46am.

In the incident, the victim also lost RM 4,900 in cash, several important documents and a laptop.

"The gang had apparently entered the victim's house in Bukit Cendering and stole some cash and other items before escaping in the Mercedes and Hilux.

"We were able to trace the stolen Mercedes at Kuantan Toll Plaza on the same day at 1pm but the suspects managed to escape by leaving the car at a construction site near Gambang," he said.

He said on Tuesday, Subang Jaya police managed to track down the stolen Hilux and nabbed the two suspects.

Stolen items including a laptop, handphones, car keys, important documents and RM 4,900 cash were recovered from the duo.

Abdul Aziz said both suspects have been transferred to the Marang police station and remanded until Oct 25 to facilitate investigations under Section 457 and Section 379A of the Penal Code for house breaking and vehicle thefts.
