Guard dogs injure thieves who escaped with RM35,000 in items

Blood stains on the floor inside the main gate believed to be from the thieves.

SIBU, June 30: Police are on the look out for suspects who are believed to have been injured by guard dogs while breaking into a secondhand car shop earlier today.

According to Sibu District deputy police chief Supt Collin Babat, at about 8am on Tuesday, a 28-year old salesman with the shop located at Lorong Terap noticed blood stains at the front and inside of the shop when he arrived for work.

“The shop has two German Shepherd dogs aged one and five-years-old which were not chained when it closed for business the night before,” he revealed.

The subsequent police investigation discovered blood stains throughout almost every corner of the shop which has been converted from a corner lot house.

The suspects are believed to have removed the shop’s CCTV recording before fleeing the scene.

Items worth some RM35,000 were reported missing after the break-in, including a CCTV decoder, two computer units, a biometric thumbprint reader, a modem, company documents, and 179 car keys. Property in the shop was also damaged.

The case is being investigated under Section 457 of the Penal Code for house break-in. — DayakDaily
