During these hard times, we rely heavily on food delivery riders in order to practice social distancing, while they rely on their mode of transport to make a living.
One Foodpanda rider couldn’t hold back her tears after her motorcycle was stolen while she was on the job at a supermarket in Gombak.
It was reported that the rider lost her Yamaha 135LC around 2pm when she was on her way to pick-up delivery orders at Batu Caves. The victim was shocked to find that her motorbike was missing after she returned to the parking area, where she had parked her vehicle.
The heartbreaking story came to light after a member of the “Kelab Yamaha LC135” Facebook group reported the incident through an FB post. According to the post, the auto-theft was believed to be carried out by 2 Malay males.
Based on a Harian Metro report Gombak District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Arifai Tarawe, said that his department received a report regarding the stolen bike at 3pm. He added, “The police are currently tracking down witnesses and looking into closed circuit television (CCTV) at the crime scene (in order) to identify the suspects.”
The stolen motorcycle was reported to be a blue Yamaha 135LC V6 with the number plate, “BQF 2182”. In an effort to find the motorcycle, netizens have lent a helping hand by circulating photos of the stolen Yamaha around social media.
Statistics by the Vehicle Theft Reduction Council of Malaysia Bhd (VTREC) have recorded that the Yamaha LC135 is the most stolen motorcycle (695 units) in the first half of 2020.
