KUALA LUMPUR: It is likely to be the end of the road for the “Amy Keju” robbery gang, which is in Bukit Aman’s “most wanted” list.

Police arrested its leader, a 32-year-old who goes by the moniker “Amy Keju”, at an entertainment outlet in Sungai Besi on Sunday.

The gang was believed to have been responsible for a slew of robberies in the Klang Valley, including a recent incident at a jewellery store in Rawang.

The gang, active since at least 2016, was commonly identified by the use of motorcycles during the robberies.

“We have been monitoring this gang for quite some time.

“They have been involved in several cases of interest and we know their involvement in three jewellery store robberies and a security van in Selangor.

“The gang leader has quite a record as he has been charged in court previously, but did not attend his hearings.

“The gang is among the top listed by us. We consider it to be an organised crime group,” he told a press conference in Bukit Aman yesterday.

Comm Huzir said the gang members were recruited from released prisoners that the gang leader had met during a previous stint in prison, as well as from a juvenile boys home that he was formerly placed in.

In other developments, he said police were ramping up the fight against vice, illegal gambling and secret societies.

“From June 19, police raided 926 illegal gambling outlets, and also arrested 1,462 suspects,” he said.

He said police would work with local telcos to combat online gambling.

Locally based but foreign-operated gambling “call centres” were also being monitored, he added.

“From the end of 2018 till now, there have been 75 raids, resulting in 1,228 arrests.

“These gambling outlets also utilised e-­Wallets.

“The police will monitor these with Bank Negara,” he said.

Prostitution rings would be the next main target, with the police already identifying 55 syndicates active in Malaysia, he added.
