4 Robbers flee with gems worth RM600,000


     
    BUTTERWORTH: A couple was stun­ned as four robbers coolly walked away with gems worth RM600,000 in a daring daylight robbery at their shop in Medan Kurau 1, Taman Chai Leng.
    One of the robbers who was brandishing two pistols even fired a warning shot before fleeing the scene in the 11.34am incident yesterday.
    Owner Lim Kheng Lin said she and her husband Ng Weng Keng, both 53, watched the entire two-minute robbery from inside the room behind the display shelves.
    “Three men wearing full-face helmets and black jackets walked in but they couldn’t see us.
    “Two of them started breaking the glass panels using hammers. They then placed all the jewellery into a bag.

    “Another robber was standing guard outside armed with two guns.
    “It was all over in less than two minutes,” she said.
    “We have been doing business here for the past 18 years and this is the first time we’ve been robbed.
    “They took almost everything including gold necklaces, rings and bracelets.”
    Lim’s daughter who wanted to be known only as Ng, 24, said she was outside and saw the robbers arriving at her parents’ shop.
    “I just returned from a vacation in Australia a few days ago and was distributing souvenirs to neighbouring shops when the incident happened.
    A robber, brandishing two guns, fires a warning shot and then points a gun at passers-by before escaping with an accomplice after robbing a jewellery shop in Chai Leng Park in Prai, Penang. They and two others escaped with RM600,000 worth of jewellery on two motorcycles. The heist was over in less than two minutes.
     
    “I immediately called the police. Before I could finish providing the address, the robbers had fled. I was so worried for my parents,” she said.
    An eyewitness, Yong Hee Kong, 44, said he was warned to stay put by the armed robber.
    “I heard loud noises of glass breaking, so I went outside to check.
    “The robber standing beside two motorcycles then waved a gun at me, warning me to stay inside.
    “There were many other traders during the incident but nobody dared to help,” he said.
    Police sources said a man had been arrested over the robbery.
