ALOR STAR: A youth, detained and sentenced to 100 hours of community service for motorcycle theft last month, has been detained again -- this time, on suspicion of operating a "chop shop".
Police got wind of the 20-year-old youth's activities after they detained a 19-year-old suspect for having a stolen motorcycle in Kampung Lubuk Kawah, near Jitra, last Friday.
In a follow-up operation on the same day, police raided a house in Kampung Baru nearby and picked up the youth and his 27-year-old uncle.
Kubang Pasu district police chief Superintendent Sawaludin Hamenudin said the youth would buy stolen motorcycles before dismantling the machines to sell them as parts.
