“The syndicate’s modus operandi is to steal lorries before disposing its Global Positioning System (GPS) device.

“They then modify the chassis and engine numbers to avoid detection before selling it off to third parties,” he said.

The case is currently being investigated under Section 379A of the Penal Code for motor theft and modification.
