PDRM Alert Residents To Alarming Rise In Violent House Break-Ins Across Petaling Jaya, Potentially Linked To 'Latino' Gangs

Folks living across neighborhoods in Petaling Jaya have received a cautionary alert regarding a surge in house-break-ins. Recent reports suggest the involvement of individuals, described as having a Latino appearance, in multiple robbery incidents, notably in Sungai Way and Kota Damansara.


The tactics of these burglars vary: while some focus on empty homes, others audaciously intrude even when residents are present.

Incidents linked to this group have also surfaced in Kampung Tunku, as well as SS2, SS3, and SS4 in Kelana Jaya. Typically seen in groups of four to five men, the suspects are believed to have Latin American origins.


This situation is reminiscent of past reports detailing a similar gang in the Klang Valley. In those instances, luxury cars were utilized by the gang to gain access to various housing areas, including gated communities and condos.


Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid, in charge of the Petaling Jaya Police District, confirmed awareness of these recent house-break-in cases. He reassured the public that the police force is actively investigating these incidents and initiating operations to apprehend the culprits.


Regarding the resurgence of the suspected Latino gang, ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin affirmed that the police are intensifying their investigations.


In response to the escalating situation, law enforcement has ramped up patrols across multiple districts. Additionally, police authorities have engaged with local residents' associations, urging heightened vigilance and enhanced crime prevention measures within their neighborhoods.

Emphasizing the importance of maintaining a channel of communication with law enforcement, ACP Mohamad Fakhrudin advised residents, especially those planning vacations, to secure their homes diligently during their absence.
