GEORGE TOWN: Four armed robbers managed to get away with loot worth about RM30,000 in 10 minutes from a fu chok (dried beancurd) manufacturer in Jalan Tasek, Sungai Bakap.
However, their escape were short-lived when police managed to hunt down three of them some 30 minutes later with the help of local residents.
One of them was said to be high on police wanted list in connection with cheating case in Kuala Lumpur.
A fourth suspect is still at large during the 5.30am incident on Sunday.
Police recovered the loot, a Walter semi-automatic pistol with seven bullets, weapons and tools used for house break-ins from the suspects.
Earlier, the operator, 29, was preparing the beancurd at his processing shack behind his house before he saw three men alighting from a car with the engine running.
The three men went straight into the back of his house.
Sensing something amiss, the man the alerted his brother-in-law over the phone to call the police.
Shortly after the three robbers, each armed with a pistol, a parang and an axe respectively, bumped into him.
