Chief reporter appeals for return of laptop, offers reward


KUCHING: The Borneo Post chief reporter Churchill Edward is offering a RM2,000 reward for the return of his Acer laptop that was stolen after his house was broken into in the wee hours of last Friday.

Churchill said the laptop, an office property, was important to him as it contained records and documents of association accounts, membership registrations and many more.

“On top of that, all the photos of me, my family members and friends stored inside are invaluable, which will forever be gone if the laptop is not returned,” he said.

The family discovered that the house in Taman Stakan Jaya, Kota Samarahan was broken into Friday upon their returning from an overnight trip to Sematan at about 4pm.

“Among things stolen were two television sets, another laptop and a laptop bag,” he said, adding that a police report had been lodged over the incident.

Churchill hoped the burglar would return the laptop as the reward offered was definitely worth much more than selling it in the black market.

“I hope the burglars think about my desperation as much as I think of theirs,” he added.

He appealed that the laptop be returned to his office at 2nd Floor of Crown Tower.
