KENINGAU: Four men including one without an identification document have been nabbed by the police for breaking into a business premise at Lot 23 Padasa Commercial Complex, here, thanks to the record by CCTV camera installed at the premise.
District Police Chief, DSP Douglas Nyeging Taong, said in 10 January, around 11.00am, the premise owner was informed that his Cahaya Solar shop has been broken in.
“Upon inspection, it was discovered that the shop office and front counter were ransacked by the suspects, where RM4,380 and one Samsung Note 5 with the worth of RM2,650 were found missing. The shop owner then lodged a police report after he checked the CCTV record and found three men had broken into his premise,” he said during a press conference held after the District IPD monthly assembly.
Based on information, in 11 January, around 11.30pm, a team of police officer from Keningau IPD Crime Division led by Insp. Roning Bin Mulut went to an unnumbered house at a village in Apin-Apin, leading to the arrest of one male suspect believed to be involved with shop break-in cases in the town area.
“Interrogation made on the first arrested suspect has successfully exposed the other accomplices. In 12 January, around 1.30pm at Jalan Awas-Awas, Apin-Apin, two more men were caught under the suspicion of their involvement with the case.
In the same day around 2.00pm, a team of police officer led by ASP Khairu Amra Bin Haron arrested another man believed to be involved with the same case.
“With the arrest of the four suspects, the police is confident to have solved the breaking-in of an Express Post premise reported recently and other similar cases involving houses and shops around the district,” Douglas added. –SayangSabah
