Malacca

Six robbers armed with parangs took RM3.6 million worth of electronic microchips and transmitters from a warehouse in Batu Berendam Industrial Park, Taman Teknologi Cheng yesterday.

The men had entered the warehouse via the back door at 5:30am and shut off electricity from the building. Then, they tied up a lorry driver, co-driver and three security guards on duty. The robbers moved 28 boxes of goods to another lorry.

The driver and co-driver arrived from Kulim, Kedah at 3:30am and were to transport the goods to a factory in the same area. They decided to sleep in the lorry instead of going straight to the factory as the goods were meant to be delivered later that day.

Police indicate that the CCTV recording in the premises were burry as it was dark at the time. No arrests have been made.
