Driver refused to stop and tried to run over officer
However, the suspects refused to comply and even tried to hit one of the officers with his car!
The officer then fired two shots at the Nissan’s car tyre but failed to stop the vehicle from getting away.
Following the Facebook post by JPJ, authorities began their chase after they caught the two suspicious-looking unidentified males while monitoring the traffic near Jalan Genting Klang. They tried to stop the vehicle for further examination but the suspects immediately broke away from traffic, heading to Jalan Gombak.

The car was later found abandoned with drugs inside it
While PDRM managed to retrieve the abandoned vehicle on the DUKE highway, the suspects managed to escape. Authorities are currently investigating the registration number of the vehicle to verify its legitimacy as the car is registered under a 62-year-old woman, not pictured or identified to be in the vehicle during the incident.
It was said the drug was suspected to be Syabu a.k.a. meth.
The incident reportedly occurred at around 4:30 p.m. on Monday (18th May). Authorities urge anyone with information about the suspects of the case to come forward to help with the investigation process.
