Engineer Arunachalam Sathiamoorthy, 48, was on his way back to Singapore after an overnight trip to Desaru with his wife and daughter when he lost his way.

At around 3.30pm, he stopped at Perling Mall for a quick bite as his daughter was hungry. He returned less than an hour later to find his Honda Stream missing.

An iPhone 6 Plus, three credit cards and two CashCards were among the valuables in his vehicle.

Ten seconds was all it took for thieves to make away with Mr Nolan Khoo's Honda Civic outside popular shopping mall Tebrau City at about 4.20pm.

The 32-year-old assistant manager at a logistics firm posted about the incident on Facebook.

He also uploaded a video of the theft, which was captured on a surveillance camera from a nearby store. It showed a man unlocking the driver-side door of the car and driving it away.

AUG 15

At around 8am, retiree Yeoh Seng Hock, 75, parked his car among other Singapore-registered vehicles about 20m away from a popular eatery in Taman Sri Tebrau.

When he returned 15 minutes later, his second-hand Honda Fit was gone.
