Top cop loses firearm while having lunchThe Malay Mail Online – Fri, Sep 26, 2014
PETALING JAYA, Sept 26 — “Do what I say, don’t do what I do.”
That best described the incident that befell a senior anti-narcotics police officer, attached to Bukit Aman’s intelligence and operations unit, after his bag with a laptop was stolen from his car as he was having lunch at a restaurant in Jalan Gombak.
His not so intelligent act of leaving his bag unattended left him red-faced as the 43-year-old officer lost not only his laptop, but a Walther P99 semi-automatic pistol and 10 bullets.
Sources said the incident happened yesterday after the officer met another investigating officer at the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters over a drug-related case.
“The officer and his partner were in an unmarked Proton Preve. The car is usually used during stake outs by narcotics officers. The incident happened when they stopped at Jalan Gombak before returning to Bukit Aman,” the source said.
He said the officer had parked along the roadside at 1.45pm and when he returned at 2.20pm, the rear windscreen was smashed.
“The officer looked for his laptop bag but it was no where to be seen.”
He also lost his Pulapol and Bukit Aman security pass cards that were also in the bag.
The officer immediately lodged a police report at Gombak police headquarters.
In his report, he stated the car was parked close to the restaurant and at that time there were six other vehicles belonging to the restaurant’s patrons parked there.
The officer said he had locked the car and kept the laptop bag on the rear passenger seat floor-mat.
