Over the past weekend, police detained two men and a woman in Kepala Batas for attempting to steal a new Honda Civic 1.8S patrol vehicle (MPV) from the Seberang Prai Utara district police headquarters. 

According to sources, the two men were brothers, aged 28 and 32, and had impersonated policemen from the information technology resources unit. They entered the MPV on the guise of inspecting its dashcam. 

The older of the two brothers then sped off with the MPV. After half an hour, the supervising officer realised that the vehicle was missing.  

The MPV was finally apprehended in Shah Alam, approximately 370km away from the police headquarters. In the MPV was the elder brother and a woman in her 20s, believed to be his girlfriend. The younger brother was later apprehended in Tasek Gelugor to assist investigations. It is uncertain where the younger brother had gone during the incident.

During investigations, it was discovered that the main suspect had stolen the MPV to impress his girlfriend. 

Both siblings have prior criminal records and are known to be hardcore drug addicts. 

Seberang Prai Utara district police chief Assistant Commissioner Noorzainy Mohd Noor commented that the matter is being investigated under Section 379A for motor vehicle theft and Section 170 for impersonating a policeman of the Penal Code.

Fellas, you really don’t have to commit crime to impress a girl. How about a bouquet and chocolate instead?
