 | November 4, 2013

While the main suspect and his accomplice are in remand for seven days, the police are looking for a Filipina who the cops believe are keeping most of the jewellery.

PETALING JAYA: Kuala Lumpur police are in the hunt for a Filipino woman believed to be the lover of the security guard who robbed a jewellery outlet at a shopping mall in Setapak on Thursday.

When contacted, Kuala Lumpur CID chief, Ku Chin Wah told FMT that police are currently searching for the woman as they believed that the lady is keeping most of the stolen jeweleries.

“We are now looking for the woman to assist us with the investigation. We believe that she is keeping most of it,” he said.

“Initial investigation shows that the woman is the lover of the main suspect,” Ku said in an SMS reply.

Ku then added that both suspects detained at the low-cost carrier terminal (LCCT) airport on Sunday are currently on remand for seven days.

On Thursday, an armed security guard fled with 93 gold chains after holding up four workers at gun point.

The suspect, however, did not fire the during the 9.45am incident.

Yesterday, city cops arrested the main suspect and a man believed to be his accomplice at the LCCT around 7am while they were waiting to board a flight to Sabah.

The duo, both Filipinos, who were using fake identification cards, later led the police to a house in Pandan Jaya where a Smith and Wesson pistol with five bullets, a pistol cover and several gold chain price tags were found.

Kuala Lumpur deputy police chief Amar Singh Ishar Singh said with the arrest, the robbery case is considered solved.
