  1. Malaysia man in a car has burger snatched out of his hand by motorcyclist & pillion rider A fitness trainer in Malaysia had his burger stolen from him from right under his nose by real life Hamburglars. Beh Kok Hooi was driving home along a highway in Selangor on Monday evening, Oct. 14 when a pair of thieves on a motorcycle snatched his burger right out of his hand — while he was in the car. Possibly baffled, hungry and shocked at the same time, he turned to Facebook to air his grievances. His post has since been shared some 6,300 times. Online commenters were as indignant on his behalf as they were bemused. Stuck in jam Beh recounted his experience in an interview with China Press. The 36-year-old said he got stuck in a traffic jam after he went out to run an errand for his wife. He then pulled out his Ramly burger he had bought and began to consume it. He had his phone in his left hand and the burger in his right. At that time, the car windows was down. From takeaway to taken away He then suddenly felt a shove against his right hand. The next moment, his burger had disappeared. Beh was left holding a sauce-covered wrapper. His first reaction was that he thought he had dropped the burger. He looked around for it as he was concerned the burger would have dirtied his car door. But by the time it dawned upon him that his burger had been taken for a ride, it was too late to give chase to the snatch thieves. He said while laughing and crying: “If you wanted a burger, I could have just treated you!” Nothing he can do He has since been unable to do anything else to locate his lost burger or hunt down the perpetrators as his car was not installed with a camera. He did not take note of the motorcycle’s licence plate number or the thieves’ faces. But Beh revealed that someone else had also been a victim of a snatch theft case about two years ago. That earlier incident took place along the same road but the thieves stole a phone then.

  9. Recently there is a case of 2007 Honda Stream being stolen in JB Tesco Tabrau carpark inside the building. This made me worry on the security of JB shopping centre building management and made me too scare to drive to JB. Is there any good ways to prevent from theft of car? Is our current keyless entry with smart key smart enough to deter the car thief? Should we park with head in or head out? Is there any good security equipment we should install to our car to prevent such incident happening?
  10. And we thought Malaysia will do such cases, Italy also not safe. So where is safe??
  11. A retiree not only snatched a gold necklace off a woman, he was able to escape from two much younger pursuers. But police managed to trace him through his mobile phone which led to his arrest. On Monday, Woon Yin Meng, 78, was fined a total of $5,000 for theft and causing hurt to Madam Tang Sweet Kun, reports The Straits Times. A community court heard that Woon was living with his son in the Maysprings condominium in Bukit Panjang. On April 21 last year, while returning to the apartment at 8am, he noticed Madam Tang, 76, who was carrying bags of groceries and had a gold necklace around her neck. Woon followed her and at the void deck along Ganges Road, he grabbed her neck with his left hand and ripped off the necklace with the other hand. He also pushed her forward, causing her to fall to the floor and bruising her forehead. Two passers-by, aged 46 and 52 years old, cornered him but he threatened them with a kitchen knife and fled into the condominium. They gave chase but lost sight of him. Woon, however, dropped his mobile phone while getting away. Police used it to establish his identity and arrested him five hours later. He also dropped the necklace and it was never recovered. Its value could not be determined. Asking the court to impose a fine, defence counsel Sankar Saminathan said that Woon was a gambling addict and had committed the offences after his son refused to give him money. He had received counselling at the Institute of Mental Health and has stopped gambling, the lawyer added. In passing sentence, District Judge Shaiffudin Saruwan said that he agreed with defence counsel that a jail term would not be appropriate and a high fine would suffice. The maximum penalty for theft is a three-year jail term and a $10,000 fine and for causing hurt is a two-year jail term and a $5,000 fine. The two charges for committing criminal intimidation by threatening the two bystanders with a knife were taken into consideration by the judge when passing sentence.

    Is this vandalism or theft?

    Saw this motorbike in the multi-storey at Pasir Ris. Police were present in the late morning. I surmise the owner must have reported the case. Parts of the motorbike were seen scattered all over the place. Makes me wonder. Is this vandalism or theft.

    Car thieves shun the Toyota Prius

    According to The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) in the US, the Toyota Prius has a much lower theft rate than other cars and a much higher recovery rate. Only 1 in 606 2008-2010 Toyota Prius is reported to be stolen as compared to the average for all 2008-2010 models, in which 1 in 78 vehicles is reported stolen. The 'problem' is that the car-jackers want commonly used vehicle parts when they break the car apart.
  18. Losing a car to theft is one of the most aggravating thing that could happened to a car owner especially if that person has put his/her blood, sweat and tears into it. Stolen vehicles usually end up being stripped into parts or shipped out of the country totally and the chances of getting it back are rather low. In Brisbane, Australia; a rather strange incident happened when dock workers inspected a container that has been sitting for ten years. In it, they found a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. In 2002, the Corvette was reported stolen by its owner in Australia. After an intensive search by the authorities and nothing was found, the owner received compensation by the insurance company (Suncorp Insurance). Recently, dock workers were inspecting containers at a dock in Brisbane and they discovered a container that no one could account for. After opening it, they found the missing Corvette, sitting on time flattened tyres. The car was considered to be in a rather good condition, not too bad after ten years. The third generation Corvette (also commonly known as the Corvette Stingray) has only 77,000 kilometres on the odometer before it went missing. It seems that it was a base model Corvette since it has the 327 cubic inch (5.4 litre) small block V8 engine fitted. Additionally, the car was fitted with a four speed manual transmission. Records show that the car was built on December 1967 and that means it is an early production third generation Corvette. Since the insurance company has already compensated the owner, they will auction the car off in order to recover any losses or make some profit from it. After sitting for ten years, the car needs some work to make it road worthy. Once it is ready, the Corvette is expected to fetch around $15,000 to $20,000 (in Aussie dollars). Image credit: Drive

    In-Flight Theft........

    CNA report : In-flight theft suspects nabbed Posted: 22 April 2012 1834 hrs SINGAPORE: Two men have been arrested separately for stealing on board two Singapore Airlines flights on Saturday. Police have been closely monitoring cases of in-flight thefts on some regional flights where passengers reported their valuables -- especially cash kept in hand-carry bags and stowed in the overhead compartments -- were stolen. In the first case, while on board a Singapore Airlines flight from Hong Kong to Singapore, a crew member saw a passenger remove a laptop bag from an overhead compartment which was several seats in front of his allotted seat. The suspect then returned to his seat and started searching through the bag. Moments later, the suspect was seen putting the bag back to where it was originally stowed. The alert crew member informed the owner of the bag and proceeded to detain the 38-year-old male suspect. A check was then made and apart from some documents, there were no valuables kept inside the bag. In the second case, a crew member -- on board a Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore to Vietnam -- saw a passenger remove a laptop bag from an overhead compartment near his allotted seat. The suspect was seen taking the bag and moving to the rear of the aircraft during the boarding process. He then began rummaging through the bag, and was seen removing cash from the bag. He later returned the laptop bag to the original overhead compartment. The alert crew member then detained the 49-year-old male suspect. Currencies amounting to S$630 belonging to the bag owners were recovered. Both men are China nationals and will be charged in court on Monday with theft. Police advise passengers to exercise caution and to keep their cash and valuables with them while on board aircraft. - CNA/wk Bravo to the crews of SIA fo their alertness... I had make it a point that everytime as anyone approach my top-cabin, I will never take off my eyes of the person and see what he is doing. Funny side is that no matter how long the flight is, I am unable to sleep on board a plane. The jet engines sound and the passengers once 'seat belt' lights off, started to move around are very distracting.

    Petrol theft..

    Today after pumped full tank of 98, while I was queuing at the cashier, I noticed a bike pulled up behind my car, took out the Vpower and put into his tank, and ride off after a while. I didn't take notice cos I thought the pump will not activate until the bill is settled, so that guy could have left unsuccessfully in his attempt to fuel up. Then.. the cashier asked me, u pump one time ah? Wth.. of course I pump once. $120... then I realized that pump allowed a 2nd pump even before the first bill is settled. At the pump, the meter showed 10 liters pumped instead of 55 liters from me. Guys, was it a malfunction at the pumps or there is no such mechanism at all? Lucky that bike was filling up Vpower and I filled 98. I could be paying petrol for him if he used to same as me. Careful guys.. keep a close watch of your cars..
