SIBU (June 1): The police here are looking for two individuals to facilitate investigations on two cheating cases under Section 420 of the Penal Code.

Sibu police chief ACP Zulkipli Suhaili said they are looking for Ling Neng Thung, 46, from Simpang Selalang, Sarikei and Edward Entri, 36, from Rumah SIB Skim Sekuah, Mile 28, Jalan Oya.

Zulkipli said the police received a complaint from the teacher on March 23 that he had allegedly been deceived by Ling to make an investment in a dry food business and was promised lucrative returns.

“The victim had made a payment of RM55,000 to the suspect for that purpose but the victim never received the promised returns,” he said in a statement.

Zulkipli said Ling also allegedly deceived a supplier of a battery and truck tyres business company on Feb 2 when he made purchase of batteries and truck tyre tubes worth RM115,000 by paying with a cheque with a closed account.

For the second suspect, Zulkipli said the police received a complaint from the supervisor of a petrol station on May 25 that Edward, an employee of a sand transport company, was found to have deceived the petrol station by fueling up a vehicle without paying.

Preliminary investigation conducted by the company revealed that the suspect had made 13 refuelings from May 16 to May 25, causing the petrol company to suffer losses totaling up to RM24,711.66.
