30 police shirts stolen from Selangor laundry shop
About 30 police shirts, many with the names of high-ranking officers, have been stolen from a laundry shop in Subang Jaya, Selangor.
Police who are investigating the theft, fear that they could end up in the wrong hands.
They have warned the public to be wary of men posing as police officers, The Star reported.
The shirts, while not official police uniforms, still feature the forces’ insignia and is grey and black in colour.
Ms Rohana Muhd Bakri, the owner of the laundry shop, said police were her regular customers and sent about 30 “corporate shirts” for washing this month.
She told The Star: “We never displayed the uniforms in our shop and kept them in a bag.
"On Feb 8, my worker came to open the shop in the morning and found that our door had been pried open. Nothing was taken, just the bag with the police shirts.
“I know how the shirts could be misused so I lodged a report right away.”
She said the bag contained shirts and jackets with the first names of high-ranking police officers from Bukit Aman, the headquarters of Malaysian police, and the Subang Jaya, Kajang and Shah Alam police headquarters, stitched on them.
