KEMAMAN (Bernama): Police have detained two siblings for purportedly using fake RM100 notes in the district recently.
Kemaman district deputy police chief, DSP Mohd Haki Hasbullah said the siblings, a woman in her 40s, and her brother in his 20s, were detained in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (June 13) and Friday (June 14), respectively, by a Commercial CID team from the Kemaman police district headquarters.
"We succeeded in detecting the suspects - a woman and her younger brother - based on the registration number of their car when they were (on their cheating spree) in the district.
"Based on the information, the CCID raided a residence in Kuala Lumpur which was used as an operation centre to print the fake notes," he said when contacted by Bernama Saturday (June 15).
During one of the raids, police also seized a kebaya that was worn by the female suspect when cheating several trading premises in Kemaman, a printer and materials for making fake currency.
According to Mohd Haki, preliminary investigations showed the suspects had just embarked on the activity and were using Terengganu as the location to test the fake notes before seeking to use them in other states.
Both the suspects were taken to the district and were remanded until June 16 and June 18, respectively, to help in investigations into the case.
