Duo smash 4WD’s window, grab driver’s belongings

17th June, 2016

By JAMES LEONG

SANDAKAN: A four–wheel drive (4WD) vehicle belonging to a senior aide to a member of parliament was broken into with a sling bag containing an undisclosed amount of cash and laptop computer taken at Taman Fajar shoplots on Wednesday.

The 56-year-old aide had visited a bank in Prima Square where he changed an undisclosed sum in RM100 notes to smaller notes of RM50 at 10.20am.

He then proceeded to Taman Fajar to settle payment for the purchase of 80 bags of rice for a Ramadan programme. On reaching Taman Fajar in Jalan Airport, the victim left his bag on the front passenger seat of his 4WD before going into the shop.

At about 10.45am, as he emerged from the shop, he noticed a crowd had gathered at his vehicle and when he went near he saw the left front window smashed and the bag missing.

A bystander told the aide, everything happened very fast. Two men came in a motorcycle and one of them alighted to smash the front window. Both men later escaped after grabbing the sling bag from the seat.

OCPD ACP Zabidi Md Zain confirmed the case when contacted on Thursday.

He urged those with information on the incident to channel the details to District Crime Officer DSP Sabarudin Rahmat (012 800 2044) or ASP Nazri Abdul Razak (012 392 5759.

Zabidi advised members of the public to exercise caution when withdrawing big amount of money from banks as there could a possibility criminals could be observing and waiting for the opportunity to pounce on them.

He also reminded motorists never to leave valuables visible in open view inside their vehicle although it was for only a moment.
