PETALING JAYA: A bank’s security guard shot dead its operations officer and fled with the cash from the safe.
Bank officer Noazita Abu Talib, 37, was opening a safe with a colleague in the bank along Jalan USJ Sentral 2 at around 6.18pm yesterday.
The suspect then shot the mother of two in the face using a pumpgun before forcing the terrified colleague to load a bag with cash from the safe.
He finally made off on a motorcycle. Selangor deputy police chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar said there were only five staff members in the bank, including the suspect.
“According to the security firm, he was meant to be a replacement guard for the bank and had worked in another bank next to the crime scene. However, he raised concern over facts of the suspect’s identity.
“Checks on his IC revealed that it was a fake. We are going to look into this more and find out how he was employed with a fake IC,” he said, adding that police were investigating the CCTV footage of the bank and nearby shops.
“I advise the public to be cautious. I urge anyone with information on him to come forward,” he said.
Subang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Tan Ah Chua revealed that the suspect was identified as Ardi Hamza (770818-12-6721) from Tawau in Sabah.
