A syndicate that was manufacturing and distributing illegal DVDs and VCDs in Puchong Utama was crippled during a police raid on Saturday at 3pm. 28 CPU towers, discs worth RM500,000 and 300 disc burners worth RM45,000 were seized.

The raid was conducted in three houses in Taman Puchong Jaya, Taman Puchong Hartamas and Bandar Puteri Puchong. Two men aged 23 and 26 years were arrested.

Police believe that the syndicate, which has been operating over a year, was using the house in Taman Puchong Jaya as the packing centre, while the Taman Puchong Hartamas house was used for distribution. Runners would collect their stock from this house.
