Thieves at Suria KLCC!

My girlfriend and 2 other mutual friends of ours were having dinner at Dome, Suria KLCC (the shopping mall located at what was formerly the world’s tallest buildings, the Petronas Twin Towers) earlier this evening when they had an unfortunate encounter with a group of thieves.

There were three foreigners, 2 of them seat at the table behind my friends, while another posed as a tourist, approached my girlfriend’s table talking in a foreign language while gesturing at a magazine (of all things!). This was a means of distraction because right after that guy left, one of my friends reached down to his briefcase (which was on the floor), only to find it missing, along with the two chaps from the other table.

My friends went to make a report with the Suria KLCC security office, but it was an Isetan staff who found the bag in an elevator and returned it. Everything was intact (Mont Blanc pen, car keys, documents) save for RM 2 being the only thing missing. I guess the thieves must have thought they were grabbing a laptop bag and ditched it in the elevator once they found out it was the wrong bag to grab.

So be careful when you are dining out, even in a posh place like KLCC, you never know who might be out for a bag grab. And you know what, according to the restaurant staff, this was the second incident to happen in that restaurant on the same day!

    KLCC is notorious for pickpocketers and thieves, which is a real shame.

    Very brave of them to do such at such crowded place.
    Lesson learnt is never have a laptop look alike bag

    This is very dangerous! Once I put my handphone on the table at the delifrance when eating my lunch. Some asshole snatched it and run. Lucky i installed software and got his handphone number later by sms. Threaten him to return or report police. Still dare to ask for reward!

    Thieves are everywhere. Not only careful in KLCC, we must be extra careful in anywhere.
