Two men have been nabbed by the police for stealing durian from an orchard in Taiping
The two thieves were initially caught red-handed by the orchard owner and other villagers.
As a punishment, they stuffed durian skin into the bandits' mouth before handing them over to the police.
Harian Metro reported that around 3am, the 69-year-old owner went to the plantation with his friends to collect some fruits.
However, they stumbled upon the thieves who were loading durians into a Toyota Hilux. With some help from other villagers, they managed to capture the perpetrators.
They then tied up the bandits and stuffed their mouths with durian skin. Photos of the incident have since made the rounds on social media.
The suspects are being remanded for three days and the case is classified under Section 379 of the Penal Code
