Bandar Seri Begawan (19.02.2012) – Two men were reported to have broken into a house in Kampong Masin last Thursday at around 10.30pm.

According to a source, during the incident, the owner of the house and his family were attending a thanksgiving ceremony at a relative’s house.

When they arrived home, they were shocked to find the two suspects still inside the house. Surprised, the two suspects tried to escape to the bushes behind the house.

The owner claimed that he immediately called the police and the village head of Kg Masin to report the matter.

With the help of nearby villagers, they managed to catch one of the men and hand him over to the police, while the other man is still on the run.

The villagers said that they saw the suspects’ car parked not far from the owner’s house.

Among the items that were reported stolen were jewellery, a laptop and mobile phones.
