PETALING JAYA: Four men hijacked a trailer carrying computer integrated chips worth more than RM300,000 after overpowering its driver and his attendant near Serdang on Thursday.  

Petaling Jaya Selatan deputy OCPD Asst Comm Osman Bakar said the driver and his attendant, both in their late 20s, were sleeping in the trailer along a road near the Sungai Besi toll plaza when the hijackers surprised them at 4am. 

The hijackers armed with parangs forced both of them out of the trailer. They tied them up and wrapped towels around their faces. The hijackers then pushed them into a car and dumped them at an oil palm estate in Banting. 

It is believed that the men, after getting rid of the driver and the attendant, drove the trailer to the same estate and started loading the computer chips into several cars. 

The driver and the attendant freed themselves and lodged a report at Kuala Langat district police headquarters at 7am.
