He pays price for robbing cop's neighbour
This burglar must be cursing his luck - after he broke into a house as an off-duty policeman watched.
Corporal Che Zamila Che, 38, was smoking outside his Petaling Jaya home on Friday afternoon when he saw a burly man on a motorcycle riding past.
The man was looking into the houses before stopping in front of his neighbour’s place.
Initially, the Shah Alam-based cop thought the biker was his neighbour’s friend.
But when the man carried a bag towards the iron grille door, he realised something was fishy.
“I ran into the house, pointed the gun to his back and shouted ‘Baring!’ (lie down).”
He pinned the man to the ground, then handcuffed him.
A search revealed screwdrivers, a bunch of keys and a metal rod inside the man's bag.
Referring to the spate of break-ins and robberies in the neighbourhood, Cpl Che Zamila added:
“My neighbours always say they call the police but they arrive too late. Even when I called for help, they only came about 30 minutes later.
"As a policeman, I get upset when I hear this happening to my neighbours."
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Azmi Abu Kassim said the suspect was just released from prison for committing a robbery.
He faces up to two years jail for the latest attempted crime.
