Malaysian family frustrated after house is robbed 8 times in 12 years, despite alarm system and CCTVs
KAJANG (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Thieves broke into a house in Bandar Tasik Kesuma for the eighth time and set fire to it after they fled with their loot. The house had an alarm system and CCTVs but that did not deter the intruders. Esah Ahmad, 57, said her family might move out because of the latest incident. 'I have lived here for 12 years and this is the eighth time we have been robbed since we moved here in 1999. 'This is the final straw,' she added. Mrs Esah said she was at a relative's house in Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur, when she received a cellphone alert informing her that her house alarm had gone off at 2.28am on Saturday. 'I rushed back home and saw smoke billowing from my house.'
