Thief gets unlucky with workshop bike

MIRI: It was by sheer coincidence that a workshop operator in Tudan managed to catch the culprit who stole his motorcycle.

He had lodged a report at Lutong police station when his motorcycle was stolen a few days ago.

Then yesterday, he saw the suspect and a pillion rider astride a motorcycle, encircling the workshop area in Tudan.

As he was familiar with his bike’s distinctive tyre rims, he immediately gave chase to the suspects. The incident ended with the workshop owner pouncing on the two suspects.

However, he only managed to catch only one of the suspects with help from the public, while the other managed to escape.
