KUALA LUMPUR: Burglars broke into the home of a Negeri Sembilan royalty in Bukit Bandaraya, Bangsar this morning and escaped with cash and valuables worth RM1.7 million.
Brickfields district police chief ACP Azlee Abdullah said in the incident at about 10am, the victim in his 50s, lost foreign currency and valuables including luxury watches.
"The complainant only realised the incident after finding signs that the room door had been tampered with.
"He believed that the suspect climbed over the wall and onto a tree near the room and escaped the same way," he said when contacted by Bernama.
Azlee said the police believed that more than two people were involved in the burglary.
