Bukit Bintang Porsche thief faces seven years in jail
With bail set at RM15,000, 31-year-old Mohd Azri Mohd Kassim faces a jail term of up to seven years, and a hefty fine for his unfruitful endeavour.
According to wide reports, the incident took place on the 11th of October, at the Porsche dealership in Bukit Bintang at 9.30am when a “well-dressed man” walked into the showroom and inquired of a specific employee there.
Having plotted his diversion, he then proceeded to the upper level to look for the set of keys which were in an envelope, and then used the remote to locate his lucky car. The car thief then drove off with a Porsche Panamera 4, valued at almost RM900,000.
The car was later recovered by the police within the next 24 hours in Seri Kembangan with the keys hidden near the car as well. The thief himself was later picked up by police in Klang.
The authorities had later revealed that a criminal mastermind was behind the stolen Porsche, and that this person had instructed for the new Panamera to be stolen for him; potentially to be shipped off to neighbouring foreign countries.
Also, the News Straits Times reports that said mastermind had paid Mohd Azri RM30,000 to steal the Panamera, and deliver it to a specific location. The car thief also happened to be on the police wanted list and holds 11 convictions for robbery and car theft.
