SEREMBAN: Police arrested three suspects within hours after they allegedly struck at a money changer-cum-cash transfer outlet in Port Dickson and escaped with some RM50,000, as well as an undisclosed amount in foreign currency on Monday (Oct 14) evening.

Two of the suspects, aged 25 and 22, were detained in Selangor, while the third, a 27-year-old, was caught in Perak.


A police spokesman said the first two suspects were detained along a highway near Setia Alam at around 1am on Tuesday (Oct 15).

The two, who are both from Selangor, were apparently in a Proton Axia when they were detained.


The older suspect is unemployed, while the other worked as a lorry assistant. Both had previous criminal records.

The third suspect, who is also unemployed was detained in Bagan Datuk in Perak around 4.30am on Tuesday.

Police also seized 200 pieces of RM50 notes from the suspect, who also had a criminal record.

Earlier on Tuesday, Port Dickson OCPD Supt Aidi Sham Mohamed said preliminary investigations showed that five men armed with axes and machetes robbed the outlet located in a mall at around 4pm on Monday.

Based on preliminary investigations, two suspects smashed a glass panel with axes and then went on to break the side door to gain entry to the outlet while three others stood guard.

"The duo entered the shop and grabbed some RM50,000 and foreign currency kept in a drawer," he said.

Supt Aidi said there were three female employees in the outlet when the robbery took place.

"One of the staff managed to trigger the alarm before the suspects gained entry but this did not stop them," he said.

The suspects, who wore masks and gloves, did not harm the employees.

Supt Aidi said CCTV recordings showed that the suspects escaped in a vehicle that was earlier reported stolen in Tampoi, Johor.

Police later found the vehicle abandoned in a residential area at around 5.30pm.

The case is being probed under sections 395 and 397 of the Penal Code for armed robbery.

Supt Aidi appealed to those with information to call 017-422 0322, or visit the nearest police station.
