Kuala Lumpur

A lorry transporting microchips worth over RM500,000 was hijacked by three men at the Rawang rest stop along the North-South Expressway yesterday at 5:30am. The consignment was on its way to an electronics factory in Ipoh.

The 30-year-old driver had stopped there to use the toilet when the men, armed with machetes approached him from a four-wheel-drive vehicle. Two of the robbers forced the driver into the lorry while the third one kept watch. They drove the lorry for 5KM before leaving the driver unharmed by the roadside.

The driver then walked to a nearby police station to lodge a report. Police are investigating the case with the transport company and checking the closed-circuit television footage at the rest stop.
