Hulu Selangor cops cripple 'Muniandy Gang', arrest eight


KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): Police have crippled the "Muniandy Gang", believed to be active in burglary around Hulu Selangor, following the arrest of eight local men.

Hulu Selangor OCPD Supt Arsad Kamaruddin (pic) said the suspects, aged between 15 and 27 years old, were nabbed in three separate raids in several locations around the district.

"Police also seized 54 items including a Proton Iswara, two grass cutting machines, four televisions, four laptops and various electronic items, ” he said in a statement Friday (Nov 13).

He said police had initially received a report from a 55-year-old housewife on a burglary at her house in Kampung Baru Tambahan Ulu Yam Lama, Batang Kali, on Oct 21, with losses amounting to RM6,000, which led to the arrests.

Arsad said one of the suspects was tested positive for methamphetamine while five of them have previous criminal records.

The suspects were remanded for 10 days from Nov 4 until Saturday (Nov 14) and the case is being investigated under Section 457 of the Penal Code.

He said with the arrest of all suspects, police believed they have solved six burglary cases in Hulu Selangor. - Bernama
