Tangkak district police chief Superintendent Mohad Idris Samsuri, who confirmed that the AES camera and its pole were vandalised, said investigators were looking into the incident.
“It could have happened on Friday night as the next morning, a police highway patrol car saw the AES camera had been vandalised,” he said.
Idris said the incident only affected the AES camera on the northbound lane of the expressway. There is another AES camera nearby on the southbound lane.
“The case is being investigated under Section 427 of the Penal Code for committing mischief and damage to public property.
“If convicted, the offender can be jailed up to three months or fined, or both.”
