Malaysian Thief Returned Stolen Car
And said sorry some more. I think this is the extra benefit of being the police chief, right?
PETALING JAYA: The Proton Perdana belonging to the state police chief has been found, 48 hours after it was reported stolen.
A special investigating team found DCP Datuk Khalid Abu Bakar’s official car in Prima Damansara here, about 8.35am Saturday.
A note on the car’s dashboard said: Sorry PDRM, tersilap sapu (Sorry PDRM, it was a mistake).
“The car was found in good condition with only minor damage to the lock of the front left door,” Selangor deputy CID chief Asst Comm Khaw Kok Chin said.
He added the car’s Global Positioning System had been removed and the command baton was also missing.
ACP Khaw said police were investigating if any car theft syndicate was involved.
On Thursday, DCP Khalid’s driver parked the Perdana V6 near a restaurant in Section 9, Shah Alam, to have his breakfast. Half an hour later, he found the car missing and immediately lodged a report at the district police headquarters.
DCP Khalid was attending a meeting overseas at the time.
The car did not bear the police logo.
