Property crimes in Malaysia

On July 25, it was reported that three armed intruders broke into the house of former FELDA chairman Isa Samad in Nilai. The robbers managed to escape with roughly RM15,000 worth of cash and goods. It was actually the second time for his house to be invaded by robbers. The first time was back in 2013. About a month ago, on June 20, Jamal Yunos’ house was also been broke in by burglars when he was busy running away from the police.


Those break-ins were publicized widely because it involves public figures. Nevertheless, house break-ins and theft are actually one of the most common property crimes in Malaysia just behind vehicle theft (motorcycle/scooter).
