PETALING JAYA: The moneychanger who allegedly fled with several hundred thousands of ringgit belonging to many foreign workers has been arrested.  

The police nabbed the Indian national in his early 30s in his posh rented condominium in Brickfields.  

Sources said the police got their major break when they arrested a restaurant owner in Mentari Plaza, Sunway at about 4pm yesterday.  

The restaurant owner, a close friend of the moneychanger, gave valuable information which helped the police arrest a close associate of the moneychanger about two hours later.  

After questioning him, the police raided the condominium. 

On Tuesday, The Star had reported that many Indonesians had been cheated by the man whom they had entrusted to remit their money to their accounts back home in Indonesia. 

More than 19 of them had lodged police reports alleging that the man had cheated them of over RM120,000.
