Thieves broke into a house in Bandar Tasik Kesuma for the eighth time and set fire to it after they fled with their loot.
The house had an alarm system and CCTVs but that did not deter the intruders.
Esah Ahmad, 57, said her family might move out because of the latest incident.
I have lived here for 12 years and this is the eighth time we have been robbed since we moved here in 1999.
“This is the final straw,” she added.
Esah said she was at a relative's house in Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur, when she received a cellphone alert informing her that her house alarm had gone off at 2.28am yesterday.
“I rushed back home and saw smoke billowing from my house.”
Esah said she ran into a room to collect the CCTV recorder, but was overwhelmed by the flames which spread to the kitchen and other rooms.
“I couldn't see what the robbers had stolen from the house.
“All the nine cameras were destroyed by the fire,” she said, adding that she lodged a report at the Kajang police station.
