Crime alert: Blatant theft at Sunway Pyramid

Powerpoint presentation of crime from CCTV recordings

From an email forward, a crime alert at Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya:

Guys, just be aware of your handbags (ladies) and bags (guys). There are opportunists wherever we are.

Have a look at this and be careful with your handbag…
My handbag was stolen last week and you can view the power point of the pictures taken off the security camera of Sunway Pyramid.

Xandria and I were at a private function at Thai Thai Restaurant seated at the VIP table in a private area of the restaurant and yet my rather big hand bag which was placed on the floor between my seat and Xandria's was stolen. We did not move away from our seats at any point of time.There were 8 other people at our table and another 2 tables of VIP guests and journalists in the same room and none of us noticed anyone coming near us except the waiters serving our table. It's really incredible how that happened.

They look like a middle eastern couple.

This is to remind everyone to be very careful as these are professionals and it can happen to anyone. Please send the power point to all your families and friends as this may help prevent further such incidences.

    Lately, there has been a spate of email circulating regarding a loss of handbag experienced by Ms Susan Ooi at a Thai restaurant.

    It is indeed noble of Susan to relate her experience to others so that similar experience would not befall on others. As highlighted, crime are getting organised and smarter. And the best protection we can accord is to be eternally vigilant and always keep our valuable in our own close custody, preferably in hand and never to leave it out of sight in public areas.

    The mall being a public area has visitors of types. Unfortunately they may be some small fraction of unscrupulous ones among the many good hearted folks out there.

    Many instances of loss of valuable happened so fast and on split seconds in public gathering and area. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people that take advantage of this and seize the opportunity of petty theft, e.g., valuables exposed inside the car is also another case.

    Of course, we are human with frailty and limitations. There are moments our guard down will lapse. It is at this moment these unscrupulous characters strike and cause personal loss. It happens to anyone, everyone, anywhere and everywhere.

    So, at all times and especially during festive season, keep valuables within your custody and sight.
