SELANGOR, MALAYSIA— A school headmaster was shocked to find that the RM109,000 worth of school aid meant for students left inside his car was stolen after getting a drink, with the Malaysian police looking into the theft.

Mohd Zaid Hassan, the Kajang district police chief assistant commissioner, confirmed that the district police received a report about the incident at 12.17 pm yesterday (16 Jany).

According to the police statement, the 50-year-old primary school headmaster withdrew the cash at 10 am yesterday (16 Jan) in Kampung Baru Semenyih.

He had placed the cash inside a bag and placed it at the front passenger seat of his car.

Police learned that the victim later went to get a drink from a nearby restaurant.

“When he returned to his car 10 minutes later, he noticed the rear passenger’s window was broken, and the money was missing.”

The money was financial aid provided for his school and was supposed to be distributed to his students the next day.

The case was being investigated under Section 379 of the Penal Code.

Mohd Zaid said police had beefed up their efforts to track down the thief. He also urged witnesses or anyone with information to contact the nearest police station.
