KUALA LUMPUR: A routine crime prevention operation paid off handsomely when police arrested two men who had been on the wanted list for months. 

The first was a 44-year old man said to be involved in a spate of car thefts in the Klang Valley while the second man, 37, was wanted in connection with a criminal breach of trust (CBT) case. 

The two were among 34 people arrested during the raid carried out in Jalan Masjid India here from 2am to 5am yesterday. Eighteen were Indian nationals who did not have visas to be in the country. 

Police also arrested five drug addicts and two Indonesians who did not have any identification documents on them. 

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Kamal Pasha Jamal, who led the 120-strong team, said he was very satisfied with the operation.
