KLANG: A robbery gang has been busted for attempting to smuggle out injection moulding machines worth over RM3.6mil which they robbed from a factory.
North Klang OCPD Asst Comm Nurulhuda Mohd Salleh said they were alerted shortly after the robbery at a factory near Bandar Sultan Suleiman here on Jan 26.
"We launched an investigation and arrested two suspects at around 10am on Wednesday (Jan 30) at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2).
"The two then led us to the arrest of three others at a warehouse, only 3km away from the factory they robbed," she told reporters at the North Klang police headquarters on Thursday (Jan 31).
She said investigations revealed three of the suspects posed as Tenaga Nasional technicians to gain access to the factory before tying up the security guards and blindfolding them.

"The factory was empty when the group robbed it.
"The group had sold all the machinery to a buyer in China for RM900,000, but our checks revealed that each machine was worth RM400,000 brand new.
"They received the money and were planning to smuggle the items out of the country," she said, adding that checks revealed that none of the suspects aged between 27 and 48 had prior records.- Star
