Four caught in the act of stealing ATM





A Colombian gang skilled in disabling sophisticated alarm systems before carting away ATM machines was caught in the act by police.
Policemen in Bandar Teknologi Kajang spotted the gang members trying to load an ATM machine, containing some RM200,000 (S$83,000), into their rented Cherry Eastar car at 1.10am on Jan 28.
A scuffle ensued before police managed to arrest one of the suspects, aged 35, said district police chief Asst Comm Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab.

Three other gang members escaped in a car.
Police believed the gang was responsible for similar thefts in the Klang Valley.
"The group would rent cars and mark out their targets.
"The arrested suspect had entered the country illegally," he said yesterday.
ACP Abdul Rashid said the gang was adept in disabling the alarm system before using cables hooked to their car to drag out the ATM machine.
He said police were hunting down the remaining gang members with the assistance of the Immigration Department.
In a separate case, a snatch thief who targeted working women having breakfast around Sungai Long and Batu 11, Cheras, was caught on Tuesday.
The suspect, aged 38, had committed at least 10 snatch thefts in those areas.
"He has four previous convictions for drugs, motorcycle theft and cheating.
"We seized a stolen motorcycle and the suspect tested positive for drugs," said ACP Abdul Rashid.
