PASIR MAS: Police found 120 motorcycle frames following the arrest of members of a motorcycle theft syndicate that has been active in Kelantan and several states during a special operation codenamed Ops Kerol.
Kelantan CID chief Asst Comm Lai Yong Heng said police detained six men, aged 21 to 32, in Kota Baru and Bachok on May 15 following a tip-off.
“One of the arrested men is the gang leader known as Kerol, in his 20s. We found 120 motorcycle frames discarded in a river in Bachok and in several houses owned by them.
“This gang has been active in Kelantan, Penang, Perak, Terengganu and Johor for the past one year,” he said at a media conference at the district police headquarters here yesterday.
ACP Lai said the gang stole motorcycles, mostly Honda EX5 models, and stripped the components for sale.
The stolen motorcycles were worth almost RM300,000, he said.
All six suspects were remanded while police hunt for the rest of the syndicate members. — Bernama
