Selamat datang ke premis JUDI yang “gagal dikesan” oleh Perak disebelah Hong Leong Bank Silibin, Ipoh. Premis judi ini bebas beroperasi 24jam tanpa dapat dikesan oleh pihak polis. PELIK? Harap boleh terangkan siapa yang sedang main wayang sekarang ini?



When 2 wrongs make a right…

1st Wrong: The Russian tourist was on the street at 2.00 am. That’s asking for trouble in any city in Malaysia where snatch thieves abound.

2nd Wrong: The snatch thief was still around on his motorbike at 4.20 am when the cops stopped him. Still around at that time? Asking to be stopped by the cops.

The Right: Cops did a good job!

You want to know what the police will do to stop this? I don’t want to talk about the police. I hope I won’t be unlucky and be caught by some mat rempit.”

IPOH, Feb 12 — In her eyes, he was just a young boy whose family had to struggle to put food on the table for him and his five siblings.

She thought she would help the teenager by asking him to follow her on her home-cleaning rounds and pay him money for helping her out.

Izzah Abdullah, 52, even allowed the boy, who lived just a few houses down the road, into her house and offered him food and drinks.

For all the help and comfort she provided him, one would think the boy would repay her goodwill in kind.

That was not the case.

For because of his actions, Izzah is dead.

Yesterday, the boy entered her house in Taman Tanjung Emas, Tanjung Rambutan, unannounced with three other teenage friends and allegedly slit her throat before escaping with some cash.

Police believe she may have been suffocated before her throat was slit.

The incident was believed to have happened at about 2am.

The four teenagers, aged between 15 and 19, allegedly entered Izzah’s house through the back door and grabbed a knife from the kitchen.

IPOH: A 51-year-old woman was found dead with neck injuries at her home in Taman Tanjung Emas, Tanjung Rambutan.

Three youths, aged between 15 and 19, have been detained for investigation.

Is it your car, stolen some time ago?

WAS IT MURDER? Did they follow him there, wait for the opportunity and kill him? Did they rob him at all?

Let’s wait for more details.

*The OUTSIDE of a bank is not a safe place! Not even at 9.15 in the morning!

In Ipoh, T. Eswaran had just stepped outside a bank with money he had withdrawn (at the ATM, of course!)

Three men, masked and holding parangs, slashed him and drove off in a Perodua Myvi. The victim died in hospital.

*Did you realize that you could be robbed at a 7-Eleven? The 7-Eleven stores are open 24/7, and frequented not only by customers like you but also by robbers!



Having robbed 15 (fifteen!) 7-Eleven stores in Kampar, Batu Gajah and Ipoh, they were finally caught.

These two guys would ride up to a 7-Eleven convenience store, enter as customers, and then brandish their parangs and threaten the store assistant.

On Friday, 7 February, they robbed a 7-Eleven store in Bercham. They went on to rob the one in Jelapang.

They were planning to rob seven more such stores before police caught up with them and seized two helmets, two jackets and a motorcycle, two mobile phones, 85 packets of cigarette as well as RM161 in cash.

Before they could rob the one in Kampung Tawas, they were arrested. Police also arrested an accomplice.

The man who was reported to have been shot was not shot by some other person but by himself! It was an accident.

‘Hardworking’ Ipoh court clerk stole RM1.5 million, say cops

February 03, 2014

Over an 18-month period, a clerk working at the lower courts in Ipoh appeared to be a role model for civil servants to emulate as she never took lunch breaks or annual leave.

However, when auditors arrived to check the courts’ books last year, the real reason for the 35-year-old woman’s commitment and diligence was uncovered.

She had embezzled more than RM1.5 million of the court’s money after she had been entrusted with collecting fines for minor offences and misdemeanours.

According to police, the clerk was a quiet and diligent worker, who never missed a day’s work between April 2012 and September 2013.

Her colleagues told police that the clerk never left her desk, not even during lunch breaks and appeared to be extremely hardworking.

The clerk’s task was to collect money from the offenders who had been found guilty by the court and fined.

Although, the fines were not substantial the total was quite large at the end of the day.

The Malaysian Insider was told that the woman would take between RM1,000 and RM2,000 a day.

She exploited a “weakness” in the system to make the necessary adjustments in the court’s computer database so that the embezzled figures would not turn up in the accounts.

The clerk managed to hide the illicit activities until late last year when auditors arrived at the courts to look through the books.

Woman clerk ‘hard at work’ siphoning RM1.5mil in fines

IPOH: She was known to be a quiet and hard-working court clerk but for over a year, the 35-year-old woman has been pocketing takings from offenders totalling over RM1.5mil.

The matter came to light during an auditing exercise when the books could not be balanced.

According to sources, the woman, who is attached with the lower courts, had been pilfering cash daily and making “adjustments” in the computer database.

The woman reported for work as usual after the auditors had exposed the scam. However, she was suspended only after court officials lodged a police report.

Police sniff out ‘faeces gang’

A GANG of thieves in Ipoh is leaving “a souvenir” behind everytime they rob a house.

The police are trying to track down the group which urinates and defecates in the living room of each house they rob.

The group, dubbed as the geng tahi or “faeces gang”, is believed to be practising black magic to put a “spell” on the home owners.

Metro Ahad reported that the group recently broke into a house in Taman Aked in Menglembu, Ipoh, when the owners were away.

“The owners returned and found that their passports, a computer and some cash from a piggy bank were missing.”

“What was most disturbing was when they found human faeces in between the kitchen and the living room,” said a police source.

The victims later lodged a report at the Menglembu police station.

The source said there had been a few previous cases whereby thieves had done the same and even watched television at the homes they robbed before leaving.

“Malaysia is more dangerous than South Africa,” were the parting words of a retired couple who returned to Johannesburg after a failed attempt to live in Malaysia under the ‘Malaysia My Second Home’ (MM2H) programme. Friends of the couple said they had feared for their own and their family’s safety.

Unlike this South African couple, ordinary Malaysians are trapped in a vicious cycle of emboldened criminals, an inept police force and a government in denial. Few have access to guns like the Tan Sri who recently shot dead a thief at a clinic in Kuala Lumpur.

Owning a gun is not what Malaysians desire. We want a police force which is committed to tackling crime and not being the lapdog of Umno Baru. Cabinet ministers deny that a state of lawlessness exists. They issue statements and are then trapped by their own spin.

Former home minister Hishammuddin Hussein, more noted for his incompetence than his achievements in office, had complete disregard for the concerns of the public. He ridiculed the rakyat after they complained about rising crime levels and told them that increased crime was only a “perception”.

Last week, Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar fumed over the Singaporean newspaper The New Paper’s headline, ‘Welcome to Malaysia where… death is cheap and staying alive costly’.

There is some truth in the claims of the article, although it omitted to mention that inflation has increased the cost of arranging contract killings. In the nineties, an Ipoh man claimed that hacking off a limb would cost RM200 and that taking someone’s life would cost RM400.

Why two reports?

Today, Ipohites who are victims of crime, are angry when told to make two police reports; the first brief report must be made at the police station which covers their area of residence or where the theft occurred, whilst the second detailed report is to be made with ‘Team A’ at the police headquarters, opposite the Ipoh railway station.

Why two reports? Have the police so much time on their hands, that they feel it necessary to waste the rakyat’s time and taxpayer’s money, too?

Victims of crime are already traumatised. Must they go through more agony, this time at the hands of the police? Not everyone can spare money for travel, or time off from work or their hospital bed, to make several reports.

There are many stories of police incompetence or delay in reaching the scene of the crime. Some victims claim that the police are either too lazy or incapable of taking any forensic evidence.

In one case, the victim whose car was a write-off after a drunk driver drove into him, was told by the police not to mention the drunkenness in his report. Why? Others allege that the police brow-beat the victims into making very brief police reports. Is this to save police time or reduce their work load?

Khalid accused the Singaporeans of being busybodies, whilst Utusan Malaysia went further and claimed that jealousy was a contributory factor in the controversial headline.

Instead of quibbling about newspaper headlines, Khalid should act to reduce the crime rate of Malaysia. He faces a difficult task because he will be trapped in a mire of corruption created by rogue policemen, a corrupt judiciary and corrupt Umno Baru politicians.

“Selamat Hari Raya to everyone. Maaf zahir dan batin. When you balik kampung, spread peace and goodwill, and tell everyone you can about the injustices of Umno Baru.”

“I will not claim my son’s body until the second post-mortem”

Sherol,IPOH  –  A Burglar who got stuck in a window while trying to break into a house died after suffering from breathing difficulties.

Sherol Aizam Rashid, 27, was found by the houseowner, a construction worker named Chen, when he returned home in Taman Saz, Silibin near here just after midnight.

Chen said he was shocked when he saw a man, clad in boxer shorts, stuck in between the kitchen windowpanes and shouting for help.

Chen said he alerted police.

Ipoh district police chief Assistant Commissioner Sum Chang Keong said police were informed of the incident at 12.15am and a patrol car from the Jelapang police station arrived five minutes later.

The policemen found the suspect’s chest stuck between the iron bars with his head and hands inside the house.

“By that time, the suspect had turned blue,” he said, adding that police used a cutter to cut the metal bars to release the suspect.

Sherol’s shirt, trousers and shoes were found on the kitchen sink inside the house.

Earlier, at the mortuary, emotions ran high as the deceased’s relatives were not satisfied with the post-mortem findings.

The deceased father, Rashid Fuad, 50, said the pathologist had failed to explain the bruises on his son’s body.

Rashid said he would seek a second post-mortem to be conducted on Sherol’s body.

“I will not claim my son’s body for burial until the seond post-mortem is conducted.”  – MD

Dangerous menace

Snatch theft is a serious problem for both pedestrians and motorists

Snatch thieves are a real and present danger to both pedestrians and motorists. SHE was only 23 and had just started a new chapter in her life after finding a job in a bank in Kuala Lumpur. But things took a cruel twist. Loh Sing Ying, a Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman graduate was found lying motionless by the roadside in Taman Wahyu, Kuala Lumpur at about 7.30am on April 26 this year, about 30 minutes after she left her home to take a bus to work. She never boarded the bus. Later in the morning police went to her house to inform her family that she was dead.

Caught on camera: Chinese tourist Luo Yong, 40, was taking a photograph of his wife, Dai Qi, while they were walking along Love Lane in Penang, when a motorcyclist came from behind and grabbed her handbag.Her case is being investigated as snatch theft-cum-murder and cause of death was liver laceration and internal bleeding as her lower back and front abdominal were badly injured.

An undisclosed amount of cash and her mobile phone were missing. It was a tragic case. Her case came to my mind again after reading it in a Chinese magazine in a hair salon, recently.

But one of the most asked question among the public is what they can actually do to avoid being the next victim, while waiting and hoping for the authorities to keep the situation under control.

The authorities should not get upset over public complaints on high crime rates, or worse still fault the people for not cooperating with the police to help curb crime.

Another of my colleague has resorted to put her handbag in her car boot after she lost her bag to a snatch thief in 2006.

The robber struck after she got down from her car to open the gate of her house in Petaling Jaya.

Luckily he did not proceed to rob her or her family members inside her house.

It looks like people are very sensitive towards safety while driving these days, and have ideas on how to keep their bag safe.

A friend of mine said she puts the seat belt through the strap of her handbag to keep it secured!

Well, I guess this can be considered a protection as it makes it very difficult for the robber to grab the bag after breaking the car window.

For most of us, stopping at the traffic lights are times where we will be most vulnerable to snatch thieves.

Anyway, I may be more paranoid because I was a victim twice.

A thief or thieves broke my car window and stole my laptop several years ago.

I had parked my car at an open carpark in Atria in Damansara Jaya to have coffee with a journalist there.

I considered myself being careless for leaving the laptop on the back passenger seat.

Doctors on high alert

Doctors taking preventive measures to avoid robbery cases

Doctors should avoid driving expensive cars and wearing gold chains that would paint them as being rich. — DR YEK SING CHEE

Private medical practitioners in Ipoh are taking preventive measures to protect their clinics and patients from being robbed. DOCTORS in Ipoh have become more alert for robbers masquerading as patients walking into their clinics following the recent robbery attempt at a private clinic in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, last week.

Extra precaution: The magneticallylocked door system used at Dr Yek’s clinic only allows patients to enter after the staff presses a button from inside the clinic.Some have installed closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras and el ectronically- c ontrolled doors, as well as advising their staff to vet patients before allowing them into the clinic.

Going one step further was Dr K.E. Chew who had also purchased public liability insurance coverage in case of injuries occurring in the clinic.

“Besides that we have a list of emergency numbers, and most importantly that of the nearest police station,” he added.

Dr K.E.Chew, who has a clinic in the city centre, had told the staff to always register patients with the MyKad to ensure they were genuine and to have a record of their identity.

“Sometimes the patients say they have forgotten to bring their identification card and in such situations we have to give them the benefit of doubt and can’t turn them away.

“We have to take chances, but in the case of suspicious looking characters, we will ask them several questions first before allowing them into the doctor’s room,” he added.

Perak Medical Practitioners’ Society president Dr R. Kamalanathan said he had his clinic at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman installed with CCTVs after being robbed about six years ago.

“Two men had entered as patients, but when it was their turn, they took out knives and threatened the staff and my wife, who was the doctor on shift at that time.

“They ransacked the place for 30 minutes and took away cash and valuables, which traumatised my wife so much that she could no longer practice in the same location,” he said.

Dr Kamalanathan used to operate his clinic for 24 hours, but the robbery led him to reduce operating hours gradually over the years.

“Now, I close at 9pm and I have a security guard who comes over at 6.30pm daily.

“I also instruct my staff to ask patients to remove jackets and helmets before entering the doctor’s room,” he said.

Dr Lee Liang Liang, who has a clinic in Bercham, advised her staff to be extra careful of who walked into the clinic.

She had told them not to open the magnetic electronic door if there were suspicious looking people at the entrance.

Dr Lee said although it was difficult not to allow people to enter the clinic, somehow they are able to differentiate the genuine patients with robbers.

“I have also fixed CCTV and most importantly have a secured dispensary counter because robberies can occur at any time of the day, not only at night.

“However, I am thankful to have as neighbours, a 24-hour restaurant and a shop selling electrical goods, which operate until late at night,” she said, adding that her clinic was open until about 9pm.

Dr Chow said the association was also concerned with doctors who do house-calls, because they were just as vulnerable when they are out attending to emergencies.

He said the association did not have the exact figures on how many clinics had installed CCTVs, but it was now quite cost-effective to do so.

Malaysian Medical Association Perak branch chairman Dr Yek Sing Chee advised doctors not to attract the attention of robbers and thieves by flaunting their wealth.

“Criminals generally target doctors in clinics compared to patients because they perceive doctors to be rich targets.

“Thus, doctors should avoid driving expensive cars and wearing gold chains that would further paint them as such,” he said..

“Besides that, they must get to the root cause of such crime, such as high unemployment or degrading morals, which push people to seek easy ways to earn money,” he said.

Perak police chief gives pointers on how to avoid getting robbed after withdrawing money

I also encourage, especially businessmen who need to carry around a substantial amount of money, to inform the nearest police station.

Perak police chief urges the people to be aware of the happenings around them especially when they are at the bank.

Being careful: You are advised to bring someone to help keep a lookout whenever you are at the ATM.THE public should avoid withdrawing money from automated teller machines (ATM) when they are alone, state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said.

DCP Mohd Shukri said it was a common modus operandi of criminals to plant sharp objects in the tyres of vehicle, especially cars….they would then pretend to be Good Samaritans by alerting their victims of the punctured tyre and then rob their victims.

Burglary victims urged to make report

By SYLVIA LOOI | nst_ipoh@yahoo.comIPOH: RESIDENTS of Tebing Tinggi and its surrounding areas here are living in fear following the recent spate of burglary cases in their neighbourhood.
.Another resident, Wong Lek, lost RM7,000 after thieves carted away parts of his noodle-making machine at his home in Tebing Tinggi.

At least 10 such cases have been reported in a month.

Retiree Wong Sin Tet, 63, said his house at Taman SPPK in Pasir Puteh was broken into at the end of June after an unsuccessful break-in three weeks earlier.

“The robbers had first attempted to break into my house by prying my main door grille. He did not make a police report because nothing was stolen.

“However, they managed to get into my house on the second attempt by using a pole to hook the keys which was hanging 6m away from the door,” he said.

“But I lodged a report after the robbers came into my house,” he told the Northern Streets recently.

Meanwhile, Tebing Tinggi Barisan Nasional coordinator Tony Khoo said that many crime cases in the area went unreported because the victims found the task troublesome. Some victims have even had their homes broken into several times.

NO one would suspect a matronly-looking woman in a saree to be capable of committing robbery in daylight.

The tactic caused many women to fall prey and get robbed of their personal belongings in the last six months, said Ipoh OCPD Azisman Alias.

He said the suspect and her accomplices targeted Indian women at bus stops by offering a free ride.

When the unsuspecting victims got into the car, Azisman said they were robbed of their belongings.

Following a tip-off, he said, police succeeded in busting the “Saree Gang” on Saturday with the arrest of a 46-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man at a nasi kandar restaurant in Paser Puteh.

“Their detention led to the arrest of three other suspects, comprising two men and a woman, in Batu Gajah and Kampung Rapat.”

‘Fewer crimes in Perak’

By Sylvia Looi |

IPOH: DESPITE public perception of worsening crime, Perak’s crime index is actually on the decline in the first six months of the year.

State police chief Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said, from January to June, 4,309 crime cases were reported compared to 4,977 in the same period last year.

Speaking after the police monthly gathering recently, Mohd Shukri said the number of cases solved had also increased from 48.3 per cent last year to 50.2 per cent this year.

“The number of serious crime cases also fell from 1,062 last year to 964 this year.”

However, Mohd Shukri urged the people not to let their guard down.

Citing motorcycle thefts as an example, he said, 60 per cent of the crimes occurred inside house compounds.

“Most of the time, the owners forgot to lock their vehicles,” he said.

He also advised women against walking by themselves in housing estates to avoid becoming victims of snatch thieves.

“If you can’t avoid walking alone, do not carry handbags so that you don’t become a victim,” he added.

Guards applaud Government’s move to provide intensive training


THE announcement that some 25,000 security guards at shopping malls nationwide will receive training by the police, has met with approval from the guards themselves.

Mohd Firdaus Mohd Abd Rani, 28, told The Star that he was happy to hear the announcement by Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein to help security guards improve their crime-fighting skills.

All eyes open: Security guards keep watch using high stools and patrol the carparks with motorcycles.

He said such training would help him to be more proficient in his job at the Greentown Mall in Ipoh.

“I only joined the profession about six months ago and so far, I have only received training on how to march.

“Thankfully, I have not witnessed any crime during my watch at the mall but the training will help me prepare if anything untoward happens,” he said.

Ipoh Parade Shopping Centre security guard Rosli Ismail, 49, said the training would be beneficial should it be focused on crime prevention methods.

The guards keep in touch with each other using walkie-talkies and have been trained to watch out for strangers who loiter around the car park for too long.

IN view of the recent abduction and robbery cases that have taken place at carparks in the country, The Star checked out several parking spots in Ipoh and spoke to members of the public on how they feel about parking there.

Being the latest and newest shopping mall to come up in Ipoh, Aeon Station 18’s indoor parking area was brightly lit and equipped with close-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) at various entrance and exit points.

There were also clear signs to indicate that the carpark area was under CCTV surveillance so as to deter would-be criminals.

Shopper Shamsul Anwar Md Said, 29, said he felt better assured of his safety with regular patrolling by security guards.

“I believe their presence does deter crime.

“It is also good thinking to have separate parking areas for motorcycles and cars, meaning to say that motorcycles are not allowed into the parking area for other vehicles.

“And so, snatch thieves on motorcycles will not be able to prowl at the parking area for cars,” he said.

Security guards to be monitored for effectiveness

From page 1 THE management of carparks should constantly update safety measures to keep criminals at bay.

Ipoh Security Sdn Bhd operations manager K. Subramaniam said security guards should be changed regularly to ensure their performance was up to mark.

Lightings and closed-circuit television cameras (CCTVs) must be tested regularly to ensure they were working properly, he added.

“Shopping malls should vary their patrolling times to ensure that the guard’s movements were not predictable to criminals, who may have been observing and merely waiting for an opportune time to strike.

“Guards should also be stationed at potential hotspots or secluded areas rather than just patrolling the area,” he told The Star.

Subramaniam, who has over 40 years of experience in the security industry, said the number of guards needed at a particular parking spot depended on the size of the area.

“Sometimes, to save cost, there is only one guard for each parking level, which diminishes their effectiveness.

No matter what the police say about falling crime rates, using statistics to ‘prove’ this to us, we feel insecure and at risk.

IPOH (July 5, 2012): Four youths waylaid and assaulted a bus driver who was ferrying five school pupils, before hijacking the vehicle in Jalan Lim Boon Seng here today. However, the hijackers did not go far.

The bus, driven by one of them, skidded and crashed into a lamp-post, forcing them to flee empty-handed in the incident about 6.50am. Perak Transit bus driver D. Maniraja, 50, who sustained head and body injuries in the assault, lodged a police report.

He said he had stopped the bus at a junction, enroute to Bercham from Medan Kidd, when four youths hurled stones at its windows.

One of them banged on the door.

“When I opened the door, they struck me on the head and body. I escaped from the assailants while the five pupils were ordered out of the vehicle.

“The assailants left the scene in the bus before it hit a lamp-post near the Riverfront Hotel, about 500 metres from the scene,” he told Bernama when met at the city police headquarters.

Gerik deputy police chief DSP Wan Jamil Wan Chik said acting on information from the Kuala Kangsar police headquarters, the five suspects who were in a Perodua Viva car were detained at 1.45pm.

Police found two Samurai swords, a parang, a rotan and two face masks in the car, believed to have been used in the robbery, he said.

Jamil said police also found a laptop computer, a passport and RM834 cash, believed to have been the loot from an earlier robbery.

He added that the car used for the robbery was a rented car.

The five suspects, all in their 20s would be remanded for five days to facilitate investigations.

Five suspects nabbed after robbery in Lenggong



It’s a little field, meant for relaxation or a bit of exercise. This means that anyone can be there. It’s a public place.

Here is a man relaxing on a bench beside the place where robbers sit in their car and watch for potential victims.

But it’s 9.18am!

Time doesn’t matter. They could rob you at 9.19am, 9.35am, 11.12am, 12.39pm…right through the day and night. Like 7 Eleven, they are on the job 24/7.

Was I suspicious? Of course!

I wasn’t the only one who had doubts about his intention. It’s Saturday morning, too late for morning exercise except for elderly people like me who want to avoid the chill of the early morning wind. This man is not 30 yet.

What is he doing there? Two women, each leading a dog and each holding a long stick, watch him as they stroll past. They are suspicious, and move closer and whisper to each other, glancing at him several times.

Here is his motorcycle, AGY4877.

And here is the other man, about 18, small and slim, just the right size to either climb into a car through the window he has broken or snatch your hand bag and jump onto the back of the rider.

He sits across the road from the motorbike.

The time of this photo is 9.19am. It took me 30 seconds to walk from the first man to this second man.

It would have taken them just 10 seconds to move to their motorbike once they spotted a potential victim!

At 10.17am, I drove past and they were gone.





This spot is on Dataran Perajurit 11. Behind me is Pesiaran Perajurit 3. Ahead, on the left, is Pesiaran Perajurit 2.

If you were a robber, park your car or motorbike here, and you can watch the whole row of houses ahead of you. Wait for people to come home, and strike when they get out of their car.

A friend living on this street got out of her car when she reached home, heard a loud roar as a motorbike arrived beside here, and could only watch helplessly as the pillion rider grabbed her hand bag. “I should have been careful!” she explained. “As I passed this couple on their motorcycle, parked next to the field, I thought that they were just lovers. It didn’t occur to me that they were waiting for me!”

Last Monday night, another friend came home, got out of her car, carried her shopping inside the door, turned around, and came back out to get the rest of her stuff and her purse. A car, which was parked at this same spot shown in the photo above, stopped beside her car. The passenger got down, grabbed her purse from her car, got back into his car, and the driver shot off.

That was not the end of her trouble. On Wednesday night, she came home from town only to discover that someone had climbed her wall and tried to get into her house but left because her dog and the dog next door made a ruckus.

On Thursday, at about 4am, she was woken by a noise, so she looked out of the window. She saw a man outside her wall! She called the police, and went back to her window. She watched as the man climbed her wall! Not sure if the police would come at all, she opened her window and screamed. The guy jumped back across the wall, his accomplice drove up in a car, and off they sped.

When the police arrived, and found no sign of any robber, they scolded her. They asked if she were imagining things!

You could also stop here in your car or on your motorbike in the daytime, and strike when someone gets out of their car.


After several reports, they surely do! But what could they do? Ask everyone who parks there to hand over their IC? You see, not only do robbers stop there, law-abiding people also do the same. It’ a public place, beside a field. Anyone can stop there.

The police also stop there, purportedly on their rounds, but more probably to get a nap or read a paper.

*At 10.35pm, about 45 minutes ago, I drove past this same spot. Yes, there was a car there. Headlights on, engine on, driver door open, two guys chatting and smoking. I didn’t take a photo as that would have aroused their suspicion.



It happened at about 2.45 pm last Wednesday, 6 June 2012.

Summary in English

Sinchew reported that a woman was robbed Taman Kemuncak by three men. They trailed her to her home Taman Kemuncak . When she stopped at her front gate, 2 of the robbers, on a motorcycle, stopped beside her and robbed her. When her husband came out of the house, one of them assaulted him with a ball-and-chain. There was a 3rd man on another motorcycle.

Will you be exposed to an indecent assault?

One week night, last week: 10.30pm

It had been a long day (and night) at work, and all she wanted was to get to her car, go home and relax. Then, to bed, before another long, wearying day tomorrow.

She noticed a security guard following her but thought nothing of it.

“A security guard? That’s good,” she thught. “Safer for me.”

As she got into her car, he got in as well!

He molested her.

It’s not as safe as you think, even in Ipoh!

Summary of the newspaper report:

China Press
Ipoh 12 June 2012

At an Ipoh shopping complex on Friday, 9 June 2012

The suspect in the molest case, a mall security guard, a member of the security personnel has been suspended! The complainant is a Chinese salesgirl.

The security guard was detained for questioning the next day.

Newspaper reporters returned to the scene to follow up on the matter and found that the security guards had been suspended, but other security personnel on duty, refused to talk to them.

Police say, by SMS, that the court issued a detention order, from June 9 to 12 (Tuesday), but the police have released the suspect on bail.

Single mother held over robbery

IPOH: Years of stealing personal items and cash from the homes of friends and acquaintances without being caught could have boosted the confidence of a single mother to try her hand at something more daring.

The woman’s attempt at robbing a house in her neighbourhood in Taman Seri Desa here, fell flat when she was arrested five days later.

The New Straits Times learnt the woman, a mother of three, was being held under remand for seven days until Tuesday to facilitate investigation.

Robber strikes in broad daylight and hacks housewife’s wrist


SHE refused to hand over her car keys to the parang-wielding robber who repeatedly hacked her wrist severing four major veins.

Blood was all over and onlookers only shouted asking her to let him have her car.

The real life drama that unfolded at Taman On, in Jalan Pasir Puteh, Ipoh, at about 7pm on April 20, speaks volume of the security in the city nowadays.

The public did not dare intervene for obvious reasons; for their own safety, and also the fear of provoking the assailant who might have killed the housewife and her daughter.

Safety a main priority

Take cautionary steps to prevent untoward incidences

From page 1 ONE should never get into a fight with an armed robber, said state police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan.

He said a victim should first be calm and give in to the robber’s demands.

“A victim should never panic. It is very dangerous to retaliate against armed robbers as there is no telling how they will react.

“Never put your life or that of your family in harm’s way.

“Keeping yourself alive and your loved ones safe should always be your main priority,” he told The Star.

During last month’s gathering at the state police headquarters, DCP Mohd Shukri had revealed that there was an increasing trend of armed robbery cases.

More worrying, he had said, was that robbers were choosing firearms as their preferred weapon.

In April, a 46-year-old housewife had her hand repeatedly hacked, severing four major veins, when she refused to hand over her car keys to a parang-wielding man at Taman On, along Jalan Pasir Puteh, Ipoh.

The mother was reportedly trying to prevent a robber from taking away her car as her 11-year-old daughter was in it at the time.

The mother also suffered bruises on her left eyes, face, left arm and thighs.

DCP Mohd Shukri said while the mother had no choice but to save her daughter in this particular case, victims should hand over their belongings to the robber when told to.

Insignificant robberies

Petty thefts are aplenty and easily ignored by authorities

HE may come across as a champion in high jump, if not an acrobat by training. But he uses his skill for the wrong reason – jumping over fences of houses and stealing shoes from porches.

Barricades: A file picture of installed railings by the roadside to deter snatch theft under the Safe City Programme.I witnessed this thief in action at Taman Rasa Sayang, Ipoh one afternoon last week.

Oblivious to the incessant barking of the neighbour’s dog, he jumped in and out of two houses in the same row and took two pairs of shoes each time before speeding off with his accomplice on a motorcycle.

The episode, which I saw from the right side mirror of my car parked on the opposite side of the road, happened in less than a minute!

Unless the thief fell and injured himself, such petty theft hardly made news these days because it is just too common.

While petty theft is considered not as serious or frightening compared to snatch theft, break-in or car jacking; there is no reason whatsoever not to take steps to check it; be it on the part of the people or the authorities.

To begin with, most people will not take the trouble to lodge police reports after finding their shoes missing from their porch.

In the absence of statistics, the authorities may dismiss the problem as “insignificant”.

Even if they do go to the police station to report, I wonder how many of such cases are reported in Ipoh in a day, and what the police would say to the victims.

That reminds me of an incident a few years back when my laptop computer was stolen from my car parked at the Atria in Damansara Jaya (Selangor).

Yes, it was negligence on my part when I left it on the back passenger seat.

But this does not give anyone the right to steal it.

I was taken aback when the police officer who took my report remarked; said: “Itulah, suka tayang tayang” (That is why, like to show off).

Does the police consider it as negligence on the part of house owners whose shoes are stolen from their porch?

Petty thefts are aplenty and easily ignored by authorities


More statistics to persuade us that they are doing their job. Now, are we supposed to applaud and “appreciate” them?

Taking crime prevention to the people


POH: THE city’s crime rate  has been  decreasing since 2007.  And Ipoh district deputy police chief  Supt Ahmad Termizi Abd Haq is hoping the current crime rate of 19 per cent  will be maintained until the end of the year.”If we manage to bring down the crime rate further, it will be five years in a row that police have done so,” he said in his speech at the Moh Kita Cegah Jenayah programme in SK Buntong here, recently.Termizi said the public should appreciate the work of the police force which number 1,700 officers in the city.




It is a one-way street. Over the years, it has been a regular street-crime scene. Snatch-thefts and robberies are common BUT you can be almost certain that few of the crimes are reported.

“Why bother?” a victim said, and that is typical. “Could the police do anything?”

Now that you don’t need a police report to get a replacement Mykad, there is really no reason going through all the hassle and spending all that time lodging a report at the nearby police station. That nearby police station is the Bercham Police Station, not held in high regard by those who know.

Let’s begin at the top of the street, where there is the Public Bank.

Go into the bank, use the ATM and withdraw money, and walk to your car a short distance away. You are at risk! I have never seen a policeman anywhere nearby.

To our left (facing the bank) is quick access to Jalan Bercham, a quick escape route for any robber on a motorbike.

We now proceed down Trade Parade. On the left is a goldsmith’s shop.

Here is another goldsmith’s shop.

On the right is a row of little shops (which didn’t even have any toilet so the owner had to get one built himself!).

See the empty spaces for cars? Sometimes, every lot is taken, but in the evening, there is ample parking space. That allows robbers to get close to the pavement of a shop, grab a handbag and scoot off.

Here is a side lane that allows easy access or exit. A great escape route for a robber on a motorbike.

Down the road, one block later, there is another side lane. The shop on the left side of the lane sells bakuteh. Great stuff! My favourite bakuteh place.

At the end of the road, on the right, is a building under renovation. It began life as a food center, became a game center and what else? Well, it will become a food center again, and the bakuteh man will move over there.

See the family getting out of their car? Easy prey for any robber.

On the left side, facing the soon-to-be food court, is a 7 eleven store.

Round the corner from 7 eleven, behind where those cars are parked, are hawker stalls.

At the end of Trade Parade, you can go left or right: again, easy exit routes when you have just committed a crime.

It is along TRADE PARADE that the fences, praised by the Mayor as being so effective in prevention street crimes like snatch-thefts and road side robberies, are needed.

A woman I know came out of her car in the middle of Trade Parade, walked a few feet, and suddenly found herself jerked off her feet as a rider shot past on his motorbike while his accomplice grabbed her handbag. She fell and luckily, the strap broke, so she was not dragged along the road! Losing her handbag was not too bad as her documents, cash and credit cards were in her pockets. Still, it was s shocking experience, to say the least.


One of the shopkeepers warned me not to hold my hand phone in sight if it was an expensive one. Some guy could walk up to me, grab it and walk calmly back to his friend on their motorbike, and off they would go.

An ex-student was asked to hand over her hand phone. She did, nervously praying that the guy didn’t notice the bulge in her jean pocket where she kept her cash, Singapore dollars that she had brought home for Chinese New Year. He didn’t. What a relief, she said.

A drug-runner lord and his petty thief of a son

This street in Ipoh Garden East is long and quiet.

There have been robberies here.

Somewhere near the other end is a house that was once rented out to a man who was shot dead there with one of his gang members. They were drug-runners. That was a long time ago, the 1990s.

A couple years later, I met his elder son in unusual circumstances. At the time, I rented the upstairs of a shophouse in Ipoh Garden. It was located next to May Bank. A few times, I discovered my car unlocked and the coins gone. Once, my door wasn’t even shut properly, and my set of house keys was gone. A petty thief was routinely unlocking my car! It had no alarm, which made it easier for him.

I decided to tell this to my students. As I stood at the window, narrating the incidents of petty thefts, I said, “Which one of you owns that car there, the one the big man is looking at so keenly?”

“It’s mine, sir,” replied someone.

“Set off your alarm and see what happens.”

“Ok.” He set off the alarm, the guy drew back in alarm, and we had a good laugh.

I walked back to the front of the room and that was when a student said, “He’s in your car, sir!”

Incredulous, I dashed back to the window and looked outside. The guy who had been given a slight scare earlier had my car door open, and was bending down to pick up the large bottle of water I had placed against the door. The bottle was there to fall on his foot and delay him. Obviously, it had worked.

I ran away from the window and leapt down the stairs in haste, shouting, “Come down, boys! Let’s get him!” They came in a great rush after me.

I got to the guy who was seated in the driver’s seat.

“What are you doing in my car?”

“Nothing,” he replied and got out. He towered more than one head above me, and he was big, too. Brushing me aside, he walked off.

“Stop him, boys!” I instructed.

A dozen students surrounded him. “Our sir saus you can’t leave,” one boy explained. “Stay here or we’ll be forced to stop you.”

A shopkeeper called the police who came to take him away, with instructions for me to go over to the Sungei Senam police station to lodge a report.

Having set the students an essay, I went to the police station. The essay topic was The day we caught a thief.

At the station, the corporal pointed him out to me. The would-be petty thief was standing at the far end. Two policemen and a policewoman explained to me that the guy was a regular. A car-owner would call the police and they would go over only to discover that it was the same guy.

“If you lodge a report, he’ll have to go to court and then to jail. He’s no criminal, just slightly gila (crazy in English). In prison, he’ll pick up criminal habits and get recruited by hard-core criminals…”

The gist of it was that I didn’t pursue the matter but because I wanted my house keys back, the police took him back to his home and I followed them in my car. The police allowed me to search for my keys.

He lived in Hock Lee Park, in a double-storeyed terraced house, something in the vicinity of RM200,000 in price. He explained that before his father was killed, his mother had run away with his younger brother, back to the foreign country from where she had come. She didn’t want him because, in her words, “You’re like your father, bad.” His younger brother, her younger son, was like her, good. He would be going to university.

After the death of his father, there was no money and no food. Electricity was cut off as he could not pay the bill. The house was filthy! Leftover food and plastic bags and styrofoam containers were everywhere.

He couldn’t keep a job, whether washing up in the kitchen or serving at tables. He began stealing to buy meals.

I didn’t get my keys back. There were a half-dozen sets but none was mine.

Before I left, I warned him that if my car was broken into again, or the car of any student or their parents, we would come to visit him and beat him up. I promised 8-10 people. We would break both arms and a leg.

He never stole from my car again.

On and off, I saw him. Once, two men dragged him from their car and into a back lane. I didn’t go to take a look. Friends in Kampong Simee learnt that he was the one who stole from their cars that they parked there to do their marketing, so they would beat him up when they caught him in their car. He was big but timid.

One day, he was limping badly. He had bruises everywhere. That was quite a bad beating he must have got. Not long after that, I met him at the car park at Kinta City. “Remember me?” I asked. “Yes, yes, yes,” and he stumbled off in alarm. It seemed that he had been breaking into the cars parked there.

I last saw him in 2009.

Safer and peaceful living

There is a demand for properties in a secured neighbourhood

CONCERN over security is set to change the concept of living among Perakians, with many opting to live in a gated and guarded community.

Going through security: An artist impression of the entrance to Dorset Place, an upcoming gated and guarded community project along Jalan Raja Dr Nazrin Shah.

An emerging trend is a high demand for landed properties within a gated and guarded community as many still prefer to own the land where their property sits.

The rising demand for such properties can be attributed to two major factors — living in a secured neighbourhood and preference for landed properties compared to high-rise units.

While the price for houses in a gated and guarded neighbourhood may be higher, the demand is certainly there.

Kaizen Holdings Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Dr Tan Chin Yong said properties in a gated and guarded community cost more because one also has to take into account the cost of building facilities like clubhouse, recreational facilities, private roads and fencing.

“The owners must also pay monthly maintenance fees and sinking fund on top of the assessment they pay to the local authorities,” Dr Tan said in an interview in his office in Ipoh on Tuesday. Kaizen is one of the first to venture into gated and guarded projects with landed properties under the Land Strata Act in Ipoh about three years ago.

This is a photo of the entrance to the Tesco Supermarket basement parking lot. It’s the Tesco across the road from Jusco in Kinta City.

What is this photo all about?

See those fences along the roadside?

Here is a closer view.

Those fences are one aspect of the City Mayor’s Safe City programme for Ipoh.

We walk on the other side of the fence, and it makes it harder for robbers on motorbikes or in cars to grab our handbags.

That is brilliant!

There are openings to allow you to get between each section of the fence, and then you cancross the road.

However, this fence is in the wrong place.

Do many people walk along this road, or cross the road at this point? Only a few. No more. That’s a lot of money of fences for a handful of people.

The idea is great but the fence would be better deployed elsewhere, perhaps along Trade Parade.

Don’t know where Trade Parade is? Don’t know why that place needs a fence more than this place?
Come back soon for my next posting….

Will you be trailed from the bank, too?

Thursday, 24 May 2012: Police detained 8 robbers and recovered 5 cars here yesterday.

Were these robbers here in Ipoh to hide from the cops looking out for them elsewhere? Taking in the sights of Ipoh (Caves, limestone hills..) and enjoying nga choi kei? Also planning robberies in Ipoh and other parts of Perak?

Many years, in the 1980, several robbers came to Ipoh and rented a house which they used as their base for rest and recreation (R & R). They drove off to KL for “work”, and after a successful raid, returned to their base in Ipoh Garden, Ipoh.

They paid the landlord a deposit and several months’ rent for a corner house in a row of double-storeyed terraced houses.

This is the house.

I have not shown the front, the location or street name since it would be unethical to identify the house. It would be highly unlikely that the present owner/tenant know of its old history.

The Police tracked them down. They surrounded the house before 5am one day, and quietly and quickly evacuated all the residents in the next few houses.

Between 5.30am and 6am, the police moved in.

According to the police, an officer knocked loudly on the front door, shouting simultaneously, “POLICE! OPEN UP!” The robbers shot at them and they returned fire. In the shoot-out of a few minutes, no policeman was hurt. All the robbers were shot dead. The only survivor was a woman, girlfriend of a robber.

According to eye-witnesses who watched the incident from across the road (where there were shop houses), there was neither knocking on the door nor warning shouts. The police push the snouts of their M16’s and commence firing at a signal from their commanding officer.

Whichever version you want to believe, it was the end of the road for these robbers.


Lucky fellows, not shot at all!


Police detain eight men suspected of being involved in car thefts

Be the eyes and ears of police

By Audrey Dermawan
KUDOS to the men in blue in Perak. They truly deserve a round of applause for bringing down the crime index rate for the first four months of this year.It is no easy feat since it is widely known and accepted that criminals these days are more sophisticated than those in the past.Criminals today employ the latest technologies to carry out their criminal activities.So for Perak police to bring down the crime index rate significantly, thus making them one of the best contingents in the country, is something to shout about.

Maids trained to rob the wealthy

PETALING JAYA: A syndicate is believed to be training maids to rob the wealthy.

Under the new tactic, they train foreign maids to work in the homes of rich Malaysians and gain their trust before robbing them.

Police are investigating the possibility of such a syndicate following the latest case involving Federal Territory Wanita Umno chief Senator Datuk Azizah Abdul Samad.

Azizah’s maid had only worked for 21 days before she absconded with her employer’s jewellery valued at RM50,000.

Falling prey to thieves


CRIME can happen anytime, anywhere, and religious festivals are certainly no exception.

During the recent Thaipusam celebration, my mobile phone and voice recorder fell prey to thieves at the Sri Subramaniar Temple in Gunung Cheroh, Ipoh.

Amid a sea of devotees and visitors, I did not realise that my personal belongings had gone missing until almost half a day was spent at the temple.

Both items had been kept in a little black pouch that was hung from the strap of my backpack.

Crowded: Devotees and tourist thronging to Sri Subramaniar Temple in Gunung Cheroh in this Thaipusam celebration.

The pickpockets must be experts, for they were able to relieve me of my belongings without me noticing at all.

Robbed in broad daylight


HAVING been a journalist for over a decade, I thought I had seen it all.
But a recent incident, in which I was robbed at parang-point, changed my entire perception of things.

It had started out like any other day for me where I sent my two sons to my parents-in-law’s place before returning to my own “pad” in Ipoh Garden East.

It was in the afternoon and not long after reaching home, I noticed two men circling the area on a motorcycle.

It did not strike me that the two were actually up to no good.
At the back of my mind, I was thinking that they might just be searching for a friend’s house.

Then suddenly they made a U-turn.

The pillion rider jumped off the machine and came charging at me with his parang, which got me shouting at the top of my lungs at the mere sight of the metre-long weapon.

Like any victim of a robbery would say everything happened so fast and in just a few seconds, I had lost my gold chain and Blackberry smartphone.

To be literally robbed in broad daylight and in the safety of my own home speaks volumes of the security there.

Days after the attack, I had people telling me that crime in my housing area is rampant.

IPOH: MORE than 20 families are living in fear opposite Jalan Harilela in Gunung Rapat here.

This is because the abandoned market building in the neighbourhood had become a drug haunt. It is also slowly turning into a dump site.

More people opting to live in guarded areas to ensure their safety


NEWS on theft, robberies, kidnapping and car jacking are so common these days that they hardly make headlines.

In fact, many victims have to count their blessings if they and their loved ones were not harmed by the intruders even if they had lost cash and valuables in the process.


Last Friday, a lorry workshop owner, who was robbed 22 times within a year, highlighted his plight in a dialogue with Deputy Home Minister Datuk Lee Chee Leong and Ipoh’s top cops.

Hor Chee Hon, 32, did it for his sake and for other entrepreneurs at the IGB Industrial Park in Tasek, Ipoh – a crime hot spot.

They hoped a police beat would be set up in the area to contain the problem.

Voicing out: Hor (left) showing the long list of about 18 police reports he lodged within a period of a year during a dialogue session with the Home Ministry and police at the IGB Industrial Park in Tasek recently.

Pregnant mum robbed

Other News & Views

A PREGNANT woman was not only robbed in her own house, she was also forced to lick the urine of one of the robbers, reported Harian Metro.

M. Yugeswari, who is nine months pregnant, said the three robbers who broke into her house in Sungai Siput, also kicked her in the stomach.

The 22-year-old was alone in her house when three men broke in through the back door.

One of them wore a mask and held me back as the other two searched my house for valuables, she said, adding that she vomited after smelling the body odour of the men.

One of them took some raw eggs from the refrigerator and forced me to eat it, Yugeswari said.

Another suspect then started urinating on the floor and forced her to lick it.

Yugeswari said the robbers made off with RM5,000 cash and RM10,000 worth of jewellery.

Sungai Siput OCPD Supt Azman Salim confirmed that police have received a report on the matter.

Crime rate drops

ROSHIDI ABU SAMAH and MANJIT KAUR at the Perak State Assembly

THE crime index in Perak has reduced last year as compared to 2010, said Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir.

The figure in 2010 stood over 11,000, and last year the figure had reduced to about 8,000, he added.

He said this had been possible due to the frequent dialogues held between the state representatives and the police, among other reasons.

“The police have taken proactive actions by conducting more patrolling and having more anti-crime programmes.

Although police claim that the crime rate in the city has dropped, many residents in various housing estates are still afraid to even venture just out of their house gates. While those who had been robbed or had their handbags snatched in front of their houses are still traumatised from the experience, others have organised themselves to initiate preventive measures against crime, including holding personal safety workshops for women and gatherings to create awareness and address concerns raised by residents on the crime rate.

A Spate of Crimes in Housing Estates

This followed several reports of robberies and snatch thefts in various parts of the city, particularly involving women. Most of the incidents occurred in the Canning Garden and Ipoh Garden areas.

However, despite all the initiatives taken by the police to reduce the crime rate, Ipoh Echo have been receiving reports of residents still living in fear because of the increasing amount of criminal activity in their area. The criminals are even getting bolder.

Ipoh Garden

In another case in Jalan Papan in Canning Garden, Ginla Chew’s friends dropped her off at her house at 10 p.m. after a dinner function. As her electric gate remote wasn’t working….
