Time and time again, we are often reminded that we should never keep any of our valuables in our cars after leaving them parked out in the open. And this advice goes as far as to include mundane items such as empty laptop bags, or even pieces of costume jewelry, as they could all lead to potential instances of break-ins from unscrupulous individuals looking to pilfer ill-gotten gains.
Man on unmarked motorbike peeks into parked cars
And just recently, one such individual was allegedly caught red-handed in the act on a video shared to local community Facebook page 我们是马来西亚人 We Are Malaysians yesterday. Purportedly taking place in Klang, a man riding on a yellow motorcycle with no discernible registration plates could be seen leaning up against a gold-coloured Range Rover Vogue, seemingly trying to scope out any items of interest in the luxury SUV’s backseat.
After a short moment, he then rides towards another row of parked cars before slipping his motorbike in-between them to check on their backseats as well. Thankfully, the alleged thief found nothing of interest in any of the cars before eventually leaving the scene.
The short clip, which has since been viewed over 22,000 times as of writing, has led to many netizens voicing their concerns over occurrences like these that can take place at any parking lot or basement. Some have speculated that the motorcycle could have been used in other criminal acts before, as it bore no registration plates.
Others have reminded motorists never to leave boxes or bags in visible parts of their vehicles, lest they fall to insidious hands.
