S’pore-Registered Honda Civic Type R Stolen in Genting Found; Thieves Had Replaced Number Plate


While Mr Damien Yeo was on vacation in Genting Highlands last week (16 Jul), his Honda Civic Type R was stolen from the parking compound of SkyAvenue mall.

Upon realising that his car was gone, the 28-year-old motorist lodged police reports in Malaysia and in Singapore for his missing car.

To his relief, it was found in a condominium car park in Sepang, Selangor, some 300 kilometres away from its initial location.

How The Car Was Found

According to the Malaysian news site Sinchew, the car was first spotted entering the condominium by a security guard at about 6am on 16 July, the same day the car was stolen.

There were numerous racing stickers plastered all over the car’s exterior, which roused the guard’s suspicion.

Once he connected the dots and realised that the vehicle resembled the stolen one, the security guard called the police.

When the police arrived at the condominium’s car park, they confirmed that the car belonged to Mr Yeo.

The four men who were connected to the car theft have been arrested on 20 July.

Alas, the car wasn’t left unscathed in the thieves’ effort to disguise the car as their own.

The Honda’s 18-inch rims were removed, and the sound system and car cameras were gone.

The three-year-old Singapore-registered plate was also replaced with a Malaysia-registered one.

Back To Its Rightful Owner

Mr Yeo told The New Paper reporters that the full extent of damage has “yet to be determined”, and it will only be fully assessed when he brings it back to Singapore.

He has plans to restore the car back to its original condition as soon as possible.

Good luck with that, because the car needs a whole new paint job.

Mr Yeo intends to return to Malaysia with his parents on 25 July to retrieve his car.

He said, “I would like to convey my thanks to the Malaysian police and the officers in charge for returning my beloved car to me.”


A found car is definitely better than having to buy a new one.

After all, the COE and car prices are so expensive these days.
