In case you missed it, a man in Kota Tinggi, Johor was arrested by PDRM officers last week, after breaking into a restaurant and stealing 10kg of rice and a carton of milk.
The man admitted to the crime, claiming that he did so out of desperation to feed his family since his wife, a school canteen helper, had not been working since her school was closed due to the pandemic.
Recently, Inspector Wan Nasrul Fariq Wan Ismail, police chief of Kota Tinggi station, visited the man's wife and children and provided assistance.
He explained that he found the family in a difficult situation, as they depended solely on the wife's small daily income.
“This family is enduring such difficulties as they only depend on the wife’s income of RM30 a day. That is also if there is a new job, then there is a salary. Since there are small children who may need basic food items, we took the initiative to help ease the burden of this family through the donation of basic necessities,” he said.
He also stated that those who are experiencing hardships should not use their difficulties as an excuse to commit crimes, and urged the public to think before acting.
Committing a felony would not help your loved ones in overcoming their difficulties.
