JOHOR BARU: Six members of an armed theft gang, believed to be behind 41 cases in the city, have been caught.

The gang members, aged between 18 and 37, were usually armed with parang.

Police first arrested two men in Stulang Laut at 3.30am on Sept 26. One of them hid a parang under his jacket.

The motorcycle seized from them carried fake registration plates and were stolen in Johor Jaya.

Further investigations led to the arrest of the other four in Kangkar Pulai.

Also confiscated were four parang, a baton, a knife, a Honda EX5 motorcycle, two ladies’ handbags and one plastic bag containing identification documents of the victims.

Johor police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Shariff said the group had been involved in 41 snatch thefts and robbery cases around the city in the past eight months.

In another case, police arrested two siblings and seized a gun and 10 bullets from them.

The siblings, aged 27 and 40, were arrested at 2.10pm on Sept 30. One of them had seven previous criminal records. DCP Mohd Mokhtar said police also arrested two other men, aged 29 and 30, for possession of five toy guns.

“The suspects were arrested in Skudai on Sept 30,” he said, adding that one of the suspects had a conviction for murder.

    You may think the Police are doing a good job until:
    1 you get arrested (wrongly) and get thrown into the lock-up; we hope you are not found hanged by your pillow case the next day..
    2 you happen to be in a car with your friends of a certain race and the police think you are robbers; hopefully the police run out of bullets before you get shot full of holes..
    3 you get taken to the station as a witness and you are interrogated right through the night…

  5. Adifferentview Says:

    4 you go to report a crime and they arrest you…
    5 you are a lawyer and go to the station to represent a client arrested at a demonstration, only to be arrested for obstructing the police in discharging their duties..
    6 you get stopped at a roadblock, and they invite themselves to your home for CNY, to collect angpao..

  6. Adifferentview Says:

    Of course, you may think you’re extremely lucky coz it wasn’t the MACC that called you in as a witness..IF you think that there’s such a likelihood, perhaps you should learn to fly?

  7. Adifferentview Says:

    Peter Sng, do you really believe that they care for your safety? No, if you’re Singaporean, you’re just another contributor to the Malaysian economy (as buyer of goods and services) and to the police (as payer of fines for traffic violations, real or invented; and payer of under-the-counter money if you don’t want a summons)..

    Latest figures: about 15,000 students from Johore study in private schools in Singapore as many consider the educational system there to be more advanced and of world standard – Datuk Maulizan Bujang, Chairman, Entrepreneur and Co-operative Development, Education and Higher Learning Committee. (The Star, 25/11/09 p N31)

    But he adds that it is not because Malaysia’s standard is not lower, that Singapore’s education system is not higher. Why do 15,000 go? “It shows we have high-income families who choose to send their children there.” Hahahaha..the man doesn’t realise he’s contradicting himself.

    Correction: But he adds that it is not because Malaysia’s standard is lower..

    Police chief blames Karpal Singh for not being allowed to interview witnesses after office hours. If the police stopped taking statements/reports about crimes after 5.30pm, would that make any difference to us? Try making a report DURING office hours and a policeman will listen to you. He’ll ask you a few questions: lost anything important? anyone hurt? Then, he may tell you that he’ll make a note of your VERBAL report, and tell you to go home. And you go home, asking yourself why you wasted your time anyway?

    I once reported a break-in, and was told tha it was coz I hadn’t left my porch light on..thus, suggesting it was MY FAULT. When told that the lights at the porch and back door were ON, he asked me why I hadn’t told them at the police station that the house was unoccupied! I didn’t want to reply that telling them the house was unoccupied would be the last thing on my mind. Tell the police when you’re away!? I’m not that daft yet.
