I’m going to report some news here hahaha… Pretty anti-climax one though… Anyway, it all happened within this 24 hours.
At 12am+, I heard some kling klang sound, I sensed something amiss, I immediately went to look out of the window and *CUSS* People stealling the drain covers!! DAMN IT! Saw them laughed and joked and even sang while carrying the covers to the nearby shop and took their sweet time chit chatting with their friends sitting nearby before carried the metals back to their nest, the house opposite the shop.
Wanted to call police to catch them red handedly but didn’t think it will be in time, the thieves would be gone by the time the police arrived. Sigh… Could only witness and couldn’t do anything.
Last Thursday, the drain cover next door was stolen, not in the middle of the night! It’s still very early like around 9 something. We didn’t know it until my dad got back from dinner. I HATE THESE PEOPLE! THEY SUCKS!
Left: Here… 4 missing covers at the roundabout at Pending Road that I took in the morning.
Right: After the first round of stealing, they did it again and stole another drain cover somewhere near my place too! They stole it and even laughed while carrying it. They really enjoy this “job”! This time my dad got so angry, he called up the police. As usual, the thieves would put it down and chit chat first before brought it back to their nest before the police came.
The four sitting there chit chatting, then there were 2 more but not there when I took this pic while waiting for the police to come. There were 6 but only four did the job, the two in black just watched.
GUESS WHAT!?!?! The police came and drove passed them -.-” My father called the police immediately to inform them they drove passed already. While still talking to them, the police finally reached the place after one big round.
They questioned them, one police officer called my dad saying that they didn’t see any stolen metal there -.-” OF COURSE LA! They already brought back to their nest. We roughly know where their nest were but the police had no right to raid the place as they need a warrant for it and it must be the exact place else it will cause a boo boo. My dad was told that they couldn’t do anything about it since there’s no evident there. If they got the evident, they would surely catch them but the police would take down the details of the thieves for record. Then another team of police came to see whether their colleague needed assistance or not. They took down the details of the four and asked them to go back. Sigh…
I don’t mean to blame the police for this, it’s all about luck and timing. They did come immediately but there is no evident to take action as the metal were took back to the thieves’ nest while my dad made the call to the police to report about it. There is no way also to raid their house.
My dad knows the house owner, it’s rented to those thieves. My dad had told the house owner about it and asked the owner to pretend to go there for some official matters but I’m not sure the owner did go to investigate or not. This is because if it’s confirmed the metals are there, the owner and us can go make a report and get the police to raid the place because my brother said that he saw many metals there everytime he got back from school. However, what we are afraid of is that, they might have sold everything already first thing this morning after the police “interviewed” them during that wee hour which was about almost 1am.
Guess what!??!?! I also got a news that the cars of the car workshop next door got its cars bonnets stolen also! All happend at the same time. Those suckers actually went on a stealing spree at this wee hour!! SUCKS! How to catch them like that?!?!? No evident really can’t do anything 🙁
One more thing, the dogs were barking these few days and during the stealing spree but we didn’t see anything all these while until last night. However we didn’t expect the cars parked behind our shop got their bonnets stolen even though we heard dogs barking at the back also because we were too focus at the front. Those dogs are smart, they know who is bad and who is good but they didn’t attack them. How I wish those dogs can speak as they are the prime witnesses.
Next up, bush fire near Puspakom at Pending Height. Saw the fire at around almost 9pm. I called the bomba immediately. The phone rang, one very tired officer picked it up and I gave him all the details. After that, I tried to take photos from the kitchen but didn’t manage to get good shoots, couldn’t see much. Thought would be something big, that would be something exclusvie!! I immediately asked my dad to drive me over so that I could take pictures *LOL*
This is what I managed to get -.-” It’s not that big after all. It was pretty big at first but when we reached there, the flame wasn’t that big anymore and saw a guy trying to put out fire using buckets and buckets of water. I wonder where he got the water hahaha… He’s the owner of the car workshop nearby, he had to put out the fire else it might burn his workshop. He’s the only one putting out the fire.
The bomba didn’t come -.-” It’s only less than 10 minutes drive and we didn’t hear the bomba coming. I’m sure I’m not the only one called them. Goodness gracious! That poor guy had to put off the fire himself, no one helped, everyone just watched. I didn’t help too as I couldn’t do anything also but I called the bomba as soon as I got to know the fire.
CLARIFICATION 16th July 2008: Red blue light is from the Bomba. It’s not from the police. I’m sorry about that. I just had a meet with the bomba people just now and they had explained to me about it. They’re using the small fire engine, an Isuzu. Just that there’s no siren on. YES! The bomba came but the fire was already small or almost gone. It’s just timing problem, no one to blame. I really thank them for coming to make the clarification.
We went home and still no sign of bomba. Then my sis and mom saw a vehicle with red blue light arrived there, it’s
the police! Not the bomba! That time the fire was quite small already. The guy managed to control it. At the end, still no bomba in sight. WOW! Amazing! Don’t think this is good. If not for that guy, I’m sure it would be worst!
The video of the fire…
Goosh… 26 years of my life, this is the 3rd time I called bomba -.-” Everytime by the time they arrived, fire got so small already except this time they didn’t come at all.
