At 10am on 14th October there was a call from the vehicle owner to the Control Room to report a vehicle theft on his Kia Spectra. The Recovery Team was dispatched by the Control Room and together with the police authorities managed to track down the car to a workshop at Kampung Baru Subang within an hour. Upon reaching the workshop in Kampung Baru Subang, police found that the vehicle was in the midst of being taken apart and all that was left was its bare chassis.
This is the workshop that did the dirty job at kampung baru subang. Can you spot your stolen car there?
It was thought that more than 100 cars that had been stolen in the state, worth around RM2M, were cannibalised for parts in this workshop. There were 12 suspects arrested.
STOLEN CAR AT KAMPUNG BARU SUBANG – COBRA STOLEN VEHICLE RECOVERY SECURITY SYSTEM ABLE TO TRACK THE STOLEN CAR
Sixty minutes. That was all it took for police to find a stolen vehicle / kereta curi.
Unfortunately, that was also all it took for car thieves to strip the Kia Spectra down to its metal skeleton.
The raid on a vehicle workshop in Kampung Melayu Subang yesterday saw 10 Malaysians and two Indonesians arrested and cannibalised spare parts worth several million ringgit recovered.
Picture taken during rainy day and we can see there are so many body parts of car sell as half cut majority from Selangor and KL area
The episode began when the owner of the Spectra parked his car in Kampung Melayu Subang at 10.30am and went about running errands.
Upon his return, he found his car missing and immediately lodged a police report.
He also informed the Cobra vehicle security system company as the car had been fitted with the system which includes a global positioning system tracker.
The company informed the car owner of the position of the vehicle according to the GPS locator. It was barely two kilometres away from where it had been stolen.
Police who went to the area where the car was located found a legitimate vehicle workshop.
But further checks revealed a second area behind the workshop where cars were being cannibalised.
Sources said the owner of the Spectra, who was also there, was stunned to see that all that remained of his vehicle was the bare chassis.
Also at the scene was a partially-cannibalised Naza Citra.
Sources said the syndicate is believed to have been operating for at least two years.
This is the entrance of the workshop. I have been visited here before and the price of all half cut and body parts sold there is expensive and not cheap as other workshop. Wonder how many RM they earned from this workshop
The amount of spare parts discovered at the scene has prompted police to seal off the scene as there were simply too many parts to take back to the district police headquarters.
Police are currently checking the background of the 12 suspects.
District police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed the incident but declined to elaborate as investigations were continuing.
