Goldsmith heist: Main suspect nabbed at LCCT

November 3, 2013

Two men, who used fake identity cards, were nabbed while waiting for a flight to Sabah at around 7am.

KUALA LUMPUR: Two Filipino men, one of whom believed to be the main suspect in the heist at a goldsmith shop at KL Festival City shopping mall, Setapak here last Thursday, were arrested at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal, Sepang today.

Kuala Lumpur deputy police chief Amar Singh Ishar Singh said the two men, who used fake identity cards, were nabbed while waiting for a flight to Sabah at around 7am.

“The 27-year-old suspect also admitted committing the robbery at the goldsmith shop. Further interrogation led the police to a house in Pandan Jaya where a Smith and Wesson pistol with five bullets, a pistol cover and several price tags for gold chains were found,” he told Bernama when contacted.

Amar Singh said with the arrest, the robbery case was considered solved.

In the robbery last Thursday, a security guard in uniform was reported to have escaped with 100 gold chains after threatening four workers of the goldsmith shop at gun point.

Yesterday, two men, one of whom believed to be the suspect’s friend, were detained in raids in Shah Alam and Sentul to facilitate investigation on the case.
