    My cousin, Dax, just informed me that he was robbed of his mobile phone by a snatch thief in a car! :shock:

    Here are the details..

    Dax was messaging on his phone in the SS22 area this morning when a car pulled up next to him.

    The driver asked him for directions to SS22/39 (which apparently does not exist). While Dax was pointing out directions to SS22/38, the driver suddenly snatched his phone and sped off! :shock:

    Although Dax tried to read the number plate, he could only read the first two letters - WM. This was because the plate was covered in black cloth!! :shock: Evidently, this guy was planning to steal right from the start.

    Dax says he has seen the car roaming in the area before. So, if you are in the area, watch out for this thief and try to get a picture of him so we can track him and bring him to justice!! :mad:

    Here are some details that Dax could tell me.

    The car was a silver-coloured KIA Spectra with number plates starting with the letters WM. The car was very clean, maybe brand-new. There were no scratch marks, or dents that he could see.

    The interiors were all in black - the dashboard and seats are black. There was a white sticker with words stuck onto the center of the steering wheel. Nothing else of note inside.

    The driver was an Indian male in his mid-20s. He was clean-shaven, with a rather sharp nose. He was dressed in a casual short-sleeved shirt with brown slacks.

    If you see this thief, be sure to take a picture of him and inform us!! :mad:

    Wow...your cousin is very observant...but I guess it wasn't good enough because the number plate is the most important clue...sigh...

    The crime rate in Malaysia is getting out of control recently.

    Err.. He wasn't driving the car. :mrgreen:

    BTW, your no. 4 tip isn't really practical. I mean, if it's a genuine accident, leaving just like that would mean you will have to pay for your own damages.

    As for no. 3, well, I get that quite a lot from Singaporean cars... asking me to get out of their way while they speed down the highway!! :haha: They never learn.... :roll:

    Well, the idea now is to look out for this guy. And if we see him, jot down his plate numbers and take a picture of him.

    Then we can report him to the police. My cousin would be very happy to ID him. :mrgreen:

    SS22 is under Damansara Jaya. Not Damansara Utama.

    I can personally talk about No. 4 -- not stopping and driving away is indeed the best thing to do. My mother was rear-ended in a traffic jam -- multiple times. She checked the rear-view mirror and saw four guys in the car. She was alone. The guys were obviously trying to provoke her into pulling over and confronting them. Once you do so, obviously, you'll be in a lot more trouble than having severe scratches.

    She was driving my Kembara and the guy behind was in a satria, so his damage was way worse. Yes, there was damage, but all in all, I prefer scratches to risking my mom's safety. :p

    Snatch theft is very common in malaysia. I havent seen it myself but it is rampant. It goes as far as if they snatch a lady's handbag and she can't/won't let go of it, they'll just go on dragging the helpless person. Most (if not all) ppl in KL are sick of these crimes but the problem is that its usually done on small motorbikes which are very common there. I think they considered banning motorbikes from entering some parts of Kuala Lumpur to curb this BS. Dunno what happened to that though. :think: I think I heard of someone in SS2 doing that when I was back in Malaysia. :think:

    Man the things I would do if I ever got my hands on any of these ppl..... :evil:

    I actually witnessed one snatch theft incident nearby my condo in Ampang (Little Korea) back in 2003.

    I was eating at this mamak joint and I sudddenly heard a lady shout "NOOO!"

    I turned, looked outside and saw a kapchai with a handbag & a couple on another kapchai tried to chase them.

    We really need more Mobile Police around Malayia. There's only one in my area & it's always parking nearby the Sony Music office.

    Well, the problem is our police don't care. They would rather hide around the corner catching ppl running traffic light, cutting queue, etc. And then take bribe. :shhh: :snooty: :whistle: :mrgreen:

    Be extra careful when you are going to bank..
    ESPECIALLY GALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Those thives usually wait their preys at there..

    Yesterday a women was robbed RM30,000 at my hometown.
    She parked her car and walked to the opposite bank when 2 guys came and snatched her handbag..

    RM10,000 was belonged to her while the RM20,000 was belonged to her fren.

    Damn snatched thief. :evil:

    Yeah, just watch out for those people who wonder around the bank. They are probably theives. When you are driving away from the bank, make sure no one is following you, who knows they are going to rob you when you stop at the traffic lights. :evil:

    That will have to depend on the situation, of course. :mrgreen:

    I agree with you. In the case of your mother, all alone vs. 4 guys, I'd say it's smarter to go off!

    But if you see it's only a young kid with a P (Probation) licence, then I wouldn't run away. :twisted:

    Yeah!! I agree. Our police are generally going after the wrong criminals. :wall:

    Just a few days ago, two traffic police wrote me a RM 150 fine for running a red light at 2am in the morning!! :doh: During the day, I never run a red light but at 2am and with no cars in sight, does it make sense to wait 3 minutes for the light to change??? :doh:

    And while they were writing up the fine, the same gang of motorcycle idiots were racing up and down the main road. Did they care? No.... :doh:

    It's really no wonder there is still so many cases of snatch thefts. The police are too busy with minor traffic offenses to bother about more serious crimes. How many people have to die before they get it into their heads??? :doh:

    Actually, when I was in Guangzhou, I heard that they were going to ban motorcycles from the city in 1-2 years' time, due to the prevalence of snatch theft. :think:

    There are too many cases like this. Yesterday I just watch a show on CCTV, about these cases. The snatch thieves actually wandered inside the bank, searching for victims who withdraw lots of money from the bank and the finally found one, a women who withdrawed 30,000 RMB (Ren Min Bi). After that, their partners waited in front of a restaurant where they knew the women would pass by, then they robbed the women. Unfortunately, they are caught on the restaurant's camera :haha: They are busted in the end. :mrgreen:

    However, this is only one out of hundreds maybe thousands of cases in China. :wall: I can't imagine how many victims out there were robbed, some even killed.

    Motorcycle idiots hard to chase what. And somemore if caught, they won't get anything. :dance: Us Chinese blur blur, easier to take bribe from lo. :mrgreen:
