Robber ‘nailed’ down in chase

Piercing through: The sole of the robber’s shoe stuck on the wall of a house in Section 17, Petaling Jaya, yesterday.
PETALING JAYA: A dramatic cat-and-mouse chase that saw policemen and robbers scaling fences and rooftops ended painfully when one of the suspects landed on a nail-studded wall in Section 17 here.

The protruding nails at the home of The Star deputy chief photographer Andrew Chong pierced through the sole of the suspect’s left foot in the early morning incident yesterday.

The suspect and two of his accomplices had earlier broken into another house and had held up a senior citizen and his daughter at knife point.

They tried to flee with over RM10,000 in jewellery and RM1,000 in cash but was foiled by a team of policemen who rushed to the area in 17 police cars. Read more .......

Council to track compactors

MUST-HAVE:The Automatic Vehicle Locating System device will monitor the vehicle’s movement
The Automatic Vehicle Locating System in the truck will ensure waste collection in Petaling Jaya is done efficiently.
ALL the 32 garbage collection contractors servicing the Petaling Jaya city will be required to install a tracking device on their  compactors soon.
The tracking device, called Automatic Vehicle Locating System (AVLS), will enable Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) to monitor the garbage collection in each of the contractors' designated zones and ensure that the rubbish collection is done as scheduled.

Announcing this  at the MBPJ headquarters yesterday, mayor Datuk Mohamad Roslan Sakiman said the council is making it compulsory for each of the servicing compactors to be installed with AVLS, which uses the global positioning system (GPS), to track the compactors' movement in real-time and monitor them from a control room in MBPJ.

Security Guards need to be more responsible .......

Received the following email from a resident regarding the attitude of the security guards in the Northern Zone ......

"Just to let you know in case other people are facing the same issue.

I'm an owner of a house under renovation on 20/10 facing TTDI, and was informed by the contractor that 2 guys on motor bikes came over this morning asking for money and threatened to beat up the workers. According to them, when they went to the security guys for help, they were given the cold shoulder.

I was planning to sign up for the security program once I moved in, but this incident is not encouraging. I understand that it is difficult to stop outsiders from driving in, but they (security guards) should be more responsive when called for. I hope that you can highlight this incident so that the rest of the neighbors are aware."
