MIRI, Dec 27: Victims of house break-ins here are advised to go to Miri Central Police Station (CPS) to identify items that were discovered and seized by the men in blue recently.
This follows police’s success in solving 80 crime cases, including those involving house break-ins, in the past two months.
City police chief ACP Lim Meng Seah told a press conference at Miri CPS that 25 suspects were nabbed during this period.
“Those arrested include the eight suspects in connection with Piasau assemblyman (Dato Sebastian Ting)’s house in Tanjong Lobang on Dec 17,” he said, adding that some of the seized items had been identified to belong to Ting, who is also Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) secretary-general.
“We call on other house break-ins victims to come forward to CPS for identification purposes those items that we have discovered and seized.”
On another matter, Lim said his men managed to recover a stolen three-tonne lorry that was reported stolen on Christmas’s Eve in Pujut 4A.
A 45-year-old man has been arrested to assist in the probe. This came about after a 7km chase around midnight yesterday, which ended at the Jalan Bintang traffic light intersection.
The drama unfolded at the Miri Bypass when a mobile police vehicle (MPV) personnel spotted the suspect acting suspiciously. No one was hurt in the chase. — DayakDaily
