KUALA TERENGGANU: Police arrested two entertainment centre workers for allegedly robbing a 24-hour convenience store in Chukai town here early on Thursday (Feb 2).

"They escaped with RM2,000 from the cash register, the store employee's sling bag which contained RM4,000, three handphones, personal documents and bank cards.
