44-year-old Anuar Yusoff has allegedly escaped with RM320,000 cash which he was guarding. Working as the driver, he and two other security guards were along Jalan Kempas Lama, Tampoi on Monday at 10:50am cashing cheques.

They had just collected RM320,000 at a bank and two of them were on their way to a second bank to cash another cheque. Using a duplicate key for the safe in the van, Anuar opened the safe and took off with the case before the other two came back to the van.

It is believed that the suspect had a court case involving criminal intimidation and his application as security guard was not yet vetted by the Internal Security Ministry and the police. The suspect started working for the nationwide security company since September.

Checks at his Taman Cempaka, Skudai, residential address and his parents’ house in Simpang Renggam, Pekan Nenas, found no leads on him.
