Car Theft In Tesco Compound

My friends and I went for dinner at a shop just opposite the Tesco in Ipoh Garden South. We parked the car at the Tesco compound and practically we could see our car from the place where we sat actually...

After dinner we walked back to the parking lot and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this.. I had to take a second look before I exclaimed to my friends.... "HEY, is that a broken window??"
And my friend's car was just parked next to this Kancil....
Feeling curious, I went nearer to see what was inside the car.... I saw a backpack left untouched... and quickly I took some pictures...

When we were reversing our car, the car owner (one man and a lady) came back... the lady exclaimed quite loudly and for a moment, she glanced in all directions including us...

I guess parking our car in shopping outlets are not as safe as we expected.... but I am surprised that we couldn't hear any "breaking sound" even when we were sitting just opposite the parking lot.... the car thieves are really daring, aren't they?

  9. I think the theives when they saw the backpack, they thought it was a laptop inside it.

    That's why they smashed the window.

    Thank God, your car was ok.

  10. Did you really have to take those puctures??? If i were the victim, id be pissing mad that you take pictures without my permission, and at the expense of my misfortune so that you have things to blog about?! Its like seeing ppl fall and quickly take a picture so you can share with your friends. Insensitive..

  11. Do not leave any valuables in the car and don't park at dimly light places. I also saw one SG mpv in tesco jb , where the window glass also shattered. I think they lost a camera.

  17. Gosh!...thieves are smart these days. They can do anything to your car without trigger the alarm. Lucky, it wasn't your friend's car.

  20. Thank goodness it's not your car. Actually sometimes I do leave backpack in my car but it's not to put a laptop. Now when I see your post, I will think twice next time whether to leave the backpack or not.

  21. They asked for it. Never leave bags in cars. If there's nothing of value inside - open it so any potential robber would see there's nothing worth the trouble.

  22. You said the lady glanced in all directions including at you... I thought she was going to accuse you of the crime! Caught in the act of getting away. :)

  23. Thief are getting very daring....all the crime fighting effort is not effective...

  24. You saw the backpack left untouched? Would it be, the thieves have already taken their loots? Er, come to think again, it's easier to grab the bag than empty it :p

    Agree with STP, never leave any item in the car visible to others. You might attract trouble later.
