Cops recover stolen condoms
By Sylvia Looi

Police in Perak have recovered about 98% of the condoms worth RM850,000 that went missing while on transit to Japan in January.

State police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said 258 boxes containing about 223,000 condoms were found at a warehouse in Klang and a house in Puchong.

Investigations showed that the consignment was taken from the factory - Sagami Manufacturers Sdn Bhd - in Bemban, Batu Gajah on Jan 6 before it was unloaded at the Klang warehouse.

The empty container was then sent to Port Klang to be exported to Japan on Jan 8.

DCP Mohd Shukri said the case had been resolved following the arrest of six men aged between 23 and 46 since Feb 15.

“Four of them have been released,” he told a press conference here Thursday. The other two men are still under remand until Friday.

He said the suspects were picked up from here, Bidor, Batu Gajah, Puchong and Klang.

“Three of them had previous records on criminal breach of trust, house breaking and keeping stolen goods,” he said.

Police, he said, believed the intense media reports had prevented the suspects from disposing the goods.

“Prior to their arrest, they had been trying hard to find a buyer,” he said.

The factory manager lodged a police report on Jan 26 regarding the RM850,000 loss after the empty container arrived in Tokyo on Jan 25.
