Cop's husband arrested over missing money

PENANG: Police have arrested the husband of policewoman for allegedly misappropriating RM12,000 belonging to an Indonesian woman.

The 24-year-old supermarket promoter was arrested in Seremban, Negri Sembilan by a team of policemen from the Central Seberang Prai police station at about midnight Monday. The man is expected to be charged later Tuesday with criminal misappropriation of property under Section 403 of the Penal Code.

He faces two-years' jail or a fine or both if convicted.

Central Seberang Prai OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Anil Shah Abdullah who confirmed the arrest said stern action would be taken against the policewoman who was also under probe.

"We do not condone such acts and will take departmental action against the policewoman,'' he said.

An Indonesian worker known only as Titic claimed that she had asked the policewoman to help retrieve her passport and a black bag containing money and jewellery from her rented room in Chai Leng Park, Butterworth, in early May last year after she was detained for not having her travel documents on her.

The woman was detained in the police lockup for 12 days from April 28 last year.

“My landlady let the policewoman into my room. She told me the policewoman came with her husband.

“I had RM16,000 and jewellery worth RM2,000 in the black bag. But the policewoman only returned RM6,000 to me through another officer,” said Titic who worked as a restaurant helper.

Titic, 30, was sent to the Pokok Sena detention centre in Kedah and subsequently deported to Medan, Indonesia, in June because her visa had expired.

“I came back in July to get back my hard-earned money. But when I confronted the policewoman, she said she did not have the money,” she alleged.

Titic said she only lodged a police report on Dec 28 last year because she was not aware of the proper procedure.
