JOHOR BARU: Police are looking for four more members of a group believed to be involved in 21 robbery and house-breaking cases in the city in the past one year. 

The suspects, who all belong to one family, are believed to be led by their father. 

Johor Baru (South) OCPD Senior Asst Comm (II) Hashim Yusof said many robbery cases could be solved with the arrest of the four men. 

SAC Hashim said that so far, police had detained the group leader's 40-year-old wife and a 20-year-old man at a house on Feb 27. 

However, subsequent investigations revealed that the man was not involved in any criminal activities. 

When police searched the house, they found stolen goods worth more than RM30,000, including jewellery, watches, foreign coins, a computer set, three medals and a bag filled with robbery equipment. 

“The goods retrieved were identified as the items stolen in nine robberies at Jalan Skudai, Jalan Nong Chik and Jalan Straits View, which also involved break-ins at homes of VIPs. 

“The 21 cases involve goods worth a total of over RM100,000,” he said. 

SAC Hashim said police were looking for Bashah Bakar, 47, whose last known address is 11 Jalan Tenang, Kampung Melayu Majidee, here, to help police in their investigations. 

He said three brothers could also help in the investigations. They are: Md Faishal, 22, Mohd Faizal, 19, and Mohd Reza, 18, whose last known address is 63 Jalan Surau, Stulang Baru, Kampung Melayu Majidee, here. 

He also urged members of the public who have information on the robbers to contact the Central Police Station at 07-223 2222 or the nearest police station. – Bernama
