CAUGHT! BIGGEST CAR THEFT SYNDICATE – 98 CARS WORTH RM8 MILLION!
BANTING: Police have smashed the biggest car theft syndicate in two years after seizing 98 luxury cars worth RM8mil from a warehouse here.
Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Bakri Zinin confirmed that the warehouse, which has been operating since June last year, had shipped off some 462 cars worth RM49mil.
Comm Bakri said the group’s modus operandi was to store the cars in shipping containers and declare them as furniture before transporting them to Cyprus, Hong Kong, Thailand and Dubai.

“Checks from the Customs’ declaration papers showed that the syndicate did not state the type of furniture in the containers but only the number of items that were being exported,” he said, adding that police were also checking if there was an insider from the port helping them.
Following a tip-off, he said police moved in on the warehouse at Kampung Black Water on Wednesday and detained four local men, aged between 20 and 40, before recovering the cars.
Police also discovered five containers ready to be shipped with five Honda City cars each.
“We have yet to nab the mastermind of this syndicate but we are working hard to close in on him,” Comm Bakri said, adding that police were working closely with Interpol.
He said police were also investigating if the syndicate had extended its operations nationwide.
