KLANG: An alert auxiliary policeman on duty at a factory managed to detain eight foreigners for holding fake MyKads after one of them acted nervous when the policeman checked their documents.
North Klang OCPD Asst Comm Nurulhuda Mohd Salleh said the incident occurred around 8.50am on June 10.
"The auxiliary policeman was on duty at the factory when a man brought three women and five men for interviews there.
"When he checked one of the individuals, he noticed the person was acting anxious.
"He suspected something was amiss and checked all their documents and suspected them to be fake," she told reporters at North Klang police headquarters on Thursday (June 11).
She said the auxiliary policeman informed his employer about his findings and brought all of them to the Meru police station.
"Investigations revealed eight of the MyKads were believed to be fake.
"The suspects said the MyKads were sold to them by an unknown man almost a year ago for around RM200 to RM300," she said, adding that police have arrested the eight as well as three agents to help with investigations.
She said they have been remanded for four days to help with investigations.
