Police Vehicle Replacement Parts Lost In Stages
Penang Police Chief Datuk Abdul Rahim Hanafi said the matter was detected in police investigations after a report on the missing items was made on Feb 18.
"We are investigating the case and believe we can solve it in the near future," he said, adding that the two police personnel aged in their 30s and 40s who were detained to assist in the investigations had been released on police bail.
Abdul Rahim was speaking to reporters after a ceremony for the handing-over of duty of the North East District Police Chief by SAC Gan Kong Meng, here today.
Gan, 59, would assume duty as Kuala Lumpur CID Chief on March 3 and his deputy, Supt Ismail Toh Paduka Idris would be acting in his place in the North East district.
Abdul Rahim said the police had not yet found the missing parts and believed they were still being kept by those who took them.
"Each of the missing items have been labelled with the words 'Government Property'...so they cannot be sold in the open market," he said.
The loss of eight components of vehicle replacement parts was only discovered on Feb 18 when the workshop supervisor entered the store at 8am and informed his superior officer.
Subsequently, police detained two members of the force who were on duty at the workshop to assist in the investigation.
