Police foil major car theft syndicate in Selangor


SERDANG (29/12/2016): Police have crippled a car theft syndicate which has been active in Selangor over the past three months.

Selangor Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Fadzil Ahmat said police arrested 14 of the syndicate’s members and seized eight stolen cars in various districts in the state. 

Fadzil said police had formed a task force to investigate the syndicate after multiple car theft cases in the state were reported last month. 

"Based on tip offs by members of the public and police surveillance, on Dec 13, police arrested two men and seized a white Toyota Vellfire, which was parked at The Square@One City, Subang Jaya. 

"Police also seized a Proton Satria belonging to one of the suspects, and found various (private) vehicle documents in the car." 

Based on a probe of the duo, police arrested another 12 suspects and seized seven more stolen cars, including two Toyota Vellfires, three Toyota Hiluxes, a Honda Integra, and a Toyota Wish.

All suspects are locals aged between 26 and 45. 

A background check revealed that six of them have a record involving burglary and car theft cases. 

Police also confiscated car theft paraphernalia from the suspects, including tools to etch out chassis numbers on car engines. 

Fadzil said the syndicate stole the cars by breaking into houses, taking the car keys and riding off with the vehicles. 

They were active in Serdang, Kajang, Gombak, Sepang and Subang Jaya.

Fadzil said the stolen cars were to be sold in the local market. Police believe they have now solved eight stolen car cases in Selangor with the arrest of the syndicate members.
