KUALA KUBU BARU: Police raided a factory producing pirated VCDs and DVDs and seized RM1.5mil worth of machines and related items following the arrest of six people in Batang Kali here.
The factory, which has been in operation for three months, is a one-stop centre for the syndicate to conduct all works, including printing, recording, cover designing, packaging and distributing.
Hulu Selangor OCPD Superintendent Frederick Laso said the factory manufactured 500,000 pieces of pirated VCDs and DVDs in a month.
He said police had been monitoring the syndicates movement for several days before a team, headed by Chief Inspector Hisham Harun, raided the factory at an industrial area at 12.40pm yesterday.
We detained six people, aged between 21 and 34, found working in the factory.
Police also seized some printing machines, VCD players, television sets and 27,000 VCDs and DVDs, which were ready to be distributed, Supt Frederick said, adding that the haul was the biggest this year.
