The RM963,000 sports car that was stolen from a showroom here yesterday was stolen again – this time from right under the noses of the police.
And police believe it was the same man who pulled it off again, because he had the car keys.
The thief stole the Porsche 911 Targa 4 from the compound of the police headquarters here at 10.45pm yesterday.
The car had been stolen from a showroom at Auto-City in Juru about nine hours earlier.
Police recovered the car an hour near Maktab Tuanku Bainun in Mengkuang Titi, about 15km away. But this time, unlike in the first incident, the car had fuel.
State police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Koh Hong Sun said disciplinary action would be taken against policemen who were found to be negligent in their duties.
“We have the suspect’s fingerprints and are confident of arresting him soon,” he said after attending a ceremony for the transfer of 42 police personnel from the North Seberang Prai district to the Central Seberang Prai district at the police headquarters.
In the first incident, the man, said to be smartly dressed man who flashed a cheque book, coolly asked for the key of the car, started it and sped off after crashing it through the showroom’s glass pane.
Police recovered the car some 2km away, at Hujung Perusahaan Dua in Prai.
