Local clothing brand, Stoned & Co, lost around RM50,000 after a thief broke into their outlet at SS15, Subang Jaya.
According to a report by Sinar Harian, a store employee received a call from her management at 12:30 a.m., informing her that there had been an incident at the point of sale. Subang Jaya District Police Chief Deputy Commissioner Abd Khalid Othman said the thief took clothes, monitors and cash amounting to RM50,000.
But, unfortunately, not everyone believes that there was a real thief. Stoned & Co took their Facebook profile share how many assume the theft was rigged.
They wrote, “First of all, we would like to thank those of you who gave us your help and support regarding the burglary case that recently occurred at Stoned & Co Subang Jaya. However, we feel depressed and disappointed by comments saying this is a “planned marketing gimmick”.”
“We assure you that this was not a staged theft or a marketing gimmick. It saddens us to see that there are people who would think we would be planning such a thing just for marketing I believe there is no brand and company that would jeopardize their brand name with such demoralized thoughts.
Well, that said, the burglary is real and they need your help to identify the thief!
The thief allegedly used a stolen license plate on his vehicle during the theft.
“We also managed to get information about the burglar from our updated CCTV footage. We are sharing this in the best interest of the public,”
“For those of you who know or come across this car in the city, please contact us immediately or contact the Subang Jaya D4 Police Team,” they added.

A STAGED THEFT? First of all, we would like to thank those of you who gave us your help and support regarding the burglary case that recently happened on stoned and co subang jaya. However, we feel depressed and disappointed by comments that this is a “planned marketing gimmick”. We assure that it was not a staged theft or a marketing gimmick. It saddens us to see that there are people who would think that we would plan such a thing just for marketing. I believe there are no brands and companies that will jeopardize the brand name with such demoralized thoughts. We are grateful for the assistance of PDRM who came to the scene within minutes of our reporting, to ensure that we could enter the store safely. PDRM was very helpful in the investigation and updated us on progress that we could not disclose further at this time. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our team who have always been with us, to be supportive. We have a small but strong team, we trust each other deeply. We couldn’t have done it without our teammates who showed up in the middle of the night after the burglar broke in and also to those helping clean up the mess the next day so we could get on with business as soon as possible . We also managed to get information about the burglar from our updated CCTV footage. We share this for the benefit of the public.

The car plate in the video does not belong to the thief. We leave it to the PDRM to investigate further if the thief is using a fake license plate. And anyone who has resources in relation to identifying a car plate number, please help further. Again, thank you and f**k the thief
