Re­cently in Kuala Lumpur, four men who were out on bail on house break-in and car theft charges were ar­rested again while try­ing to break into Malaysian Crime Preven­tion Foun­da­tion Chair­man Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye’s house. Cheras OCPD Asstis­tant Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice Mo­han Singh said the po­lice­men saw two of the men at­tempt­ing to climb a wall into Lee’s house while the other two waited in a nearby Mercedes-Benz.

“When my men ap­proached, the two quickly got into the car and all four drove off at high speed,” The chase ended less than a kilo­me­tre away at a con­do­minium. “In their des­per­a­tion, they crashed through the boom gate at the condo’s se­cu­rity guard house. “They then tried to es­cape by try­ing to ram into the po­lice car chas­ing them,” he said. ACP Mo­han Singh said the po­lice­men fired seven shots at the speed­ing car.
