Four teens busted for throwing rocks at cars along PLUS highway


SUNGAI PETANI: Four boys received a lesson in civic-mindedness when they were caught for hurling stones at passing vehicles along the North-South Expressway, here yesterday.

The boys, all aged 14, were caught red-handed by the PLUS patrol crew about 4pm under a flyover at KM96.2.

They had tried to flee from the scene upon noticing the patrol crew's presence but were detained after a short chase.

The boys were subsequently handed over to the police for further action.

A Kuala Muda police spokesman said the case is being investigated under Section 427 of the Penal Code for causing mischief, which carries a jail term of up to three months or a fine, or both, if convicted.
