JOHOR BARU: A mother and daughter were arrested for allegedly stealing various items of daily essentials worth RM1,300 at a supermarket in Taman Bukit Indah, here.

Iskandar Puteri District police chief Supt Noor Hashim Mohamad said the two, aged 58 and 30, were arrested at about 1pm Saturday by a security guard at the supermarket before a police report was lodged at about 5.30pm.

"The two housewives were detained at the exit of the supermarket with a cart containing the items believed to be stolen which were put in plastic bags. Among the stolen items were two packets of rice, two bottles of cooking oil, laundry detergent, toys, several pieces of children's clothing and a few bars of soap," he told reporters here Sunday.

He said the 30-year-old woman has three children, including a baby aged nine months. - Bernama
