KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 8 (Bernama) -- Police believe they have solved several
cases of snatch theft in Brickfields so far this year after arresting a
16-year-old boy at a mall in Jalan Klang Lama on Monday.
Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah said patrolling policemen caught
the youth as he was behaving suspiciously and was not at school then.
"Searching a bag he was carrying, the policemen found three mobile phones
and six ''Touch n Go'' cards," he told reporters.
Upon questioning him, the policemen found out that he and another person had
snatched the handbag of a 64-year-old woman in Taman Desa last Saturday.
Ku said police were looking for the accomplice.
