KUALA LUMPUR: Kajang police have busted a gang involved in armed robberies and carjacking with the arrest of eight suspects in separate raids.
Kajang police chief ACP Ab Rashid Ab Wahab said three suspects, believed to have been involved in an armed robbery in Taman Desa Serdang last month, were detained in Taman Jasmin here on Wednesday.
“The victim in Taman Desa Serdang said four masked men armed with parang escaped with jewellery, cash and handphones,” he told reporters here yesterday.
Ab Rashid said that in a follow-up operation, three other suspects, all aged between 22 and 28, were nabbed around Kajang and Bangi on the same day. Among the items seized from the suspects were a Naza Citra and Proton Putra, reported stolen in Sungai Way, parang, watches and jewellery, he said.
Meanwhile, two suspects were detained by the police while trying to break into a Hilux 4X4 vehicle near a used car complex in Batu 12, Cheras, at about 4.20am on Thursday. The suspects, aged 28 and 29, had criminal records. — Bernama
