PENANG: Police caught 16 men watching a pornographic movie at a mini cinema in Bandar Sunway on the mainland. 

A police party led by Chief Insp Cheah Chee Chong nabbed the cinema patrons, aged between 29 and 52, at 10pm on Thursday while they were watching a movie entitled Tunnel of Love.  

Also arrested was the 40-year-old cinema operator, who has been running the joint for the past month. 

It is learnt that several plainclothes policemen were earlier sent to the premises to confirm that pornographic movies were being shown there.  

A police team then moved in 15 minutes after the movie started. 

Several of the patrons tried to flee but failed as the police had blocked the exit. They were brought to the district police station where they were released after their particulars were taken down. 

A check by the police found that the cinema patrons were charged RM6 a show.  

A VCD player, ticket booklet, pornographic VCD and RM168, which was the night’s takings, were seized. Investigations showed that there were at least three shows daily and more on weekends. 

 

In another incident, integrated circuits worth more than RM350,000 were reported stolen from a multinational factory in Bukit Tengah recently. 

The theft was discovered during a stock check on Thursday.  

 

A storeroom supervisor, in his 30s, lodged a police report after discovering the theft.  

Police have recorded a statement from him.  

 

It is believed that the theft was committed over a period of three months and that it was likely to be an inside job as only workers with valid passes were allowed into the premises.
