Malaysia 'smooth criminals' walk off with diamonds
KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysian police said Sunday they were investigating how "smooth criminals" walked off with over 3.0 million ringgit ($1.0 million) worth of diamond jewellery from a gem exhibition.
District police chief Arjunaidi Mohamed told AFP that officers were probing the heist, which took place at the exhibition stand of famous local jeweller Habib at a suburban mall on Friday night.
"We have obtained the CCTV footage from the scene and have also taken statements," he said, declining to give further details as the investigation is ongoing.
It is evident that the crime rate in this country is extremely high.
If only the police spent more time solving these crimes than arresting peaceful protesters on the streets.
Really, it would be far more productive and beneficial.
