Six men arrested, stolen car and lorry parts seized

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have crippled a syndicate specialising in stealing cars, stripping their parts, storing and reselling them as spare parts in the Klang valley, Malacca and Johor, after arresting six men in two separate operations.

Police also recovered 1,603 components and engines worth a staggering RM5mil during the raid while seven vehicles were also detained.

Bukit Aman CID Director Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Mohd Zinin said during the first raid on April 8, two men in their 30s were arrested after inspecting three stores in Batu Berendam and Durian Tunggal, Malacca.

"Six cars reported stolen in the Klang valley and a lorry reported stolen in Johor were also seized," he told reporters here Monday.

He said the second raid was carried out a day later in Johor and involved a store, two shops selling spare parts and two houses while four men in their 30s were detained.

Mohd Bakri said with the arrests, police would be able to solve 250 car theft cases involving Waja, Wira, Iswara and Hicom lorries.

He said the modus operandi of the syndicate was to steal cars or lorries and hide them at stores before stripping them of their parts before selling the parts at a lower price.
