Rolls-Royce, Lam­borgh­ini seized from carpark

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Po­lice have seized a gold Rolls-Royce Phan­tom and a Lam­borgh­ini Aven­ta­dor worth RM3.4 mil­lion, both be­long­ing to a Ke­lan­tan busi­ness­man, over two sep­a­rate of­fences here.

City po­lice chief Com­mis­sioner Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh said the Rolls-Royce, with the num­ber plate “DSS”, was seized at a valet park­ing fa­cil­ity at Pav­il­ion Shop­ping Mall in Jalan Raja Chu­lan on Mon­day at about 1pm.

The yel­low Lam­borgh­ini, with the num­ber plate “G1M 5555”, was seized in the same area the fol­low­ing day.

“We acted upon re­ceiv­ing a tip-off. Both cars be­long to a busi­ness­man with a “Datuk Seri” ti­tle in his 50s, who is over­seas.

“Dur­ing the raid on Mon­day, a 39-year-old man, a lo­cal be­lieved to be the busi­ness­man’s driver, was ar­rested to as­sist in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” he told a press con­fer­ence.

He said the driver then led in­ves­ti­ga­tors to the same lo­ca­tion on Tues­day, where the Lam­borgh­ini, val­ued at about RM1.8 mil­lion, was seized.

Amar Singh said checks re­vealed the (pix) Rolls-Royce was not regis­tered un­der the Road Trans­port Depart­ment (RTD) as there was no doc­u­men­ta­tion and the regis­tra­tion num­ber was fake.

It is learnt the Lam­borgh­ini was regis­tered un­der the RTD but it had recorded a num­ber of of­fences un­der Cus­toms Depart­ment reg­u­la­tions.

Amar Singh added that ini­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tions showed the Datuk Seri also owned sev­eral apart­ment units at the build­ing from where the cars were seized.

“We be­lieve he was stay­ing in one of the apart­ment units be­fore go­ing abroad and we will get in touch with him to fa­cil­i­tate in­ves­ti­ga­tions once he re­turns,” he added.

Amar Singh said the case was be­ing in­ves­ti­gated un­der the Cus­toms Act 1967.

Mean­while, in a sep­a­rate case, a po­lice­man who was in­volved in a case where two se­nior po­lice of­fi­cers re­cently had their cars stolen from the car park of Bukit Aman’s Tower I build­ing was charged yes­ter­day un­der Section 379 (A) of the Pe­nal Code for ve­hi­cle theft, which pro­vides for be­tween one and seven years’ jail and a fine.
