Frequent break-ins but no police action
07/01/2008 The Star By Charles Fernandez

Are there any cops to act on our reports? This is the question residents and owners of Koi Tropika service apartments are asking after they have lodged several reports on the many break-ins in the area.

According to the residents association vice-chairman Teng Kam Yun, there has been an average of two break-ins each month.

“There were 11 break-in cases reported between September and November,” he said, adding that there had been no reprieve from this menace even though there were security guards on duty at the apartments.

“Most of the break-ins are carried out in broad daylight and this is cause for concern,” he said.

Teng was at the Subang Jaya IPD in Seri Kembangan with Condominium, Apartment and Highrise Committeee (CAHC) vice-chairman Khong Chee Seng to lodge a report on the latest spate of break-ins.

He said apart from the reports made, there were many other break-ins that had gone unreported.

Khong said the purpose of his visit was to urge the Subang Jaya police chief to arrange a police-residents safety dialogue to address the situation, which he felt could worsen if left unchecked.

“The thieves are only getting braver each time because of the lack of police action. The situation is frightening because there are no signs of forced entry into the apartments. We believe it is the work of a syndicate using a master key to enter the units,'' said Khong.

Khong despite numerous complaints and letters forwarded to the security company, there had not been any improvements in the security aspects.
