Rings smuggling cars via Thailand to Asean countries
BANGKOK: Malaysian car-jacking syndicates have been using Thailand as a transit point to smuggle stolen vehicles into other regional countries such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
According to Bukit Aman CID director Datuk Seri Wan Ahmad Najmuddin Mohd, the Royal Thai Police (RTP) had since 2015 recovered more than 100 stolen Malaysian vehicles in the kingdom and handed them over to their Malaysian counterparts.
“Thailand is a transit country for Malaysia's car-jacking syndicates,” he told reporters after receiving 20 stolen cars, mostly luxury vehicles, from RTP adviser Gen Witaya Prayongpan during a ceremony here yesterday.
