Teenage school drop out arrested

The police have detained a teenage school drop-out and an electrician in connection with a gang which specialised in stealing luxury cars for sale to ready buyers in the Klang Valley.

The suspects, aged 19 and 27, were picked up in Kuchai Lama here on Tuesday about 7.30pm.

Upon interrogation, the duo led the police to the recovery of a Mercedes Benz at a condominium in Brickfields. The car was reported stolen in Kota Damansara, three days ago.

Brickfields police chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said today, the suspects might shed light on the theft of two other luxury cars.

One of the vehicles was stolen in Puchong on Nov 3, while the other was in Seri Kembangan in July.

Wan Abdul Bari said the police were in the midst of tracking down an accomplice of the suspects who were remanded until Nov 16 to facilitate investigations.
