THANKS to information from members of local neighbourhood watch groups, the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) last week managed to detain two local suspects and recovered 14 stolen cars which were reported missing in the month of September and October this year.
The RBPF statement issued yesterday said the suspects, a 35-years-old male and a 26-years-old female, were charged in court on October 16 in connection with the car-theft case and will be in remand for further investigation.
Both suspects will be brought to court today for further proceedings.
The recovered vehicles were reported missing at the Central Police Station, Berakas Police Station, Sengkurong Police Station and Limau Manis Police Station.
The vehicles were stolen from the BSB vicinity, including the Batu Satu area, Jalan Tutong, Jalan Beribi, Kg Sg Tilong, Perpindahan Lambak Kanan, STKRJ Lambak Kiri, Serusop, Jalan Pasir Berakas, Junjongan, Jerudong and Menglait.
The owners of two of the 14 stolen vehicles have yet to be located.
The RBPF conveyed its appreciation to the public for providing the valuable information, which led to the capture of the suspects. It also highlighted the effectiveness demonstrated by the neighbourhood watch in helping to provide information to the police.
The Royal Brunei Police Force also advised the public not to be involved in any criminal activities and help provide any information on suspicious activities by contacting 993 or the nearest police station.
