Two ex-cons back to crime after freedom

10th October, 2019

By JONATHAN NICHOLAS

BEAUFORT: Old habits die hard as two young ex-convicts quickly regressed to house breaking and motorcycle theft not long after receiving their freedoms.

The 24, and 21 year-olds were picked up by police an unnumbered houses at Kampung Kuala 2 in Papar and Kampung Luagan here at about 5.30am on Tuesday.

District police chief DSP Azmir Razak said the duo soon became prime suspects after receiving several reports of the same criminal nature.

“They had hit a house in the district and made away with two bikes some time this year, one of which was parked outside a Chinese temple.

“The first suspect confessed to the crimes when apprehended and named his accomplice who was then picked up shortly after.

“They led officers to where they stashed the bikes,” Azmir said.

He said the mastermind moved to Papar from Beaufort after being released from jail but chose to pursue the criminal life.

Seized were a Modenas GT 120 and a Honda EX5 while the duo were remanded for investigation under Sections 457 and 379A of the Penal Code.

In other police developments here, two men, 31 and 27, were caught with 5.28 grammes of syabu on Tuesday afternoon.

The duo with drugs worth RM600 in street value was taken to the station following a raid on a garage here. DSP Azmir said they were shown a criminal mugshot album to point out their associates but no positive response was recorded.

“One was charged under Section 39A(1) of the Dangerous Drugs Act for pushing and the other under Section 12(2) of the same act for possession,” he said.
