IPOH - The police have not received reports that a patrol car with three "policemen" were robbing people here.
Ipoh OCPD ACP Sum Chang Keong said the car was definitely not from the Ipoh police district MPV unit.
He said checks carried out after the news spread in the social media showed that the alleged Proton Waja was using a false registration number plate.
"No one has come forward to make any such report concerning the case," he said in a statement yesterday.
ACP Sum was commenting on a recent circulation in the social media that the car was making its rounds here, and that people have been robbed by them.
It was stated in a Facebook posting that if the "policemen" tried to stop people, it was best to drive to the nearest police station because the three were impersonating as policemen to rob people.
The posting also stated that there were two cases reported, one in Pasir Puteh and the other in Menglembu.
The anonymous person who had posted the information reminded everyone to be careful and to spread the news.
ACP Sum, however, advised the people to be careful and go to the nearest police station if they are in trouble.
