STRONG DEMAND IN USED SPARE PARTS ENCOURAGES CAR THEFTS
SUBANG JAYA, June 21 — The strong demand in used vehicle spare parts has led to an increase in the number of car thefts being reported.
Selangor Deputy CID Chief, ACP Omar Mammah said members of the public were opting for used spare parts because they were cheaper and the buyers were unaware that the spare parts could have come from stolen vehicles.
While not denying that negligence and the attitude of the public towards vehicle safety had contributed to the car thefts, he said the good demand for used spare parts was also a factor.
He said this to reporters after witnessing the signing of the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Pro Ice Sales & Services and the Crime Prevention Foundation, here on Monday.
Omar said sophistication in technology such as the latest security alarm should be exploited to prevent crime especially those involving vehicle thefts.
He said the sophisticated alarm system could not only cause the car engine to stop but also trace the location of the vehicle.
