Police have solved at least 52 robbery cases with the arrests of 22 suspects from two gangs, known as the Waja and Vicky gangs. The gangs are allegedly involved in armed robbery on shops and houses over the last three months. The areas in which they hit were Klang Utama, Kapar, Taman Sentosa, Shah Alam and Kuala Selangor, targeting housewives and people who were leaving for work.

The suspects from the Vicky gang were either teenagers or in their early 20s, and would slash their victims with their parangs ruthlessly. They would travel in six cars and three motorcycles. Groups of four would be formed, using a Toyota Altis, Honda City, Toyota Vios, Toyota Avanza, Proton Wira and Proton Iswara.

However, it was revealed that four Vicky gang members, including the 19-year-old leader, were currently put under the Restricted Residents Act in Sik, Kedah, where they were to sign in weekly. Thus, it was possible that these suspects would join with the rest of the gang to commit robberies in between.

The Waja gang is allegedly responsible for at least 36 robbery cases. They would use cars stolen from their victims, such as a Proton Waja and two Perodua Kancil. The leader of the gang is a 20-year-old man with the alias Panjang.

This gang’s common targetted areas were Taman Klang Jaya, Bandar Puteri, Taman Sentosa, Taman Chi Liung, Taman Selatan and Palm Grove.

Police are looking for the following people to aid in further investigation: A. Sivakumar @ Langkawi, 21 years old, from Section 20, Shah Alam, M. Mokan @ Mogan, 18 years old, G. Mugunthan @ Moon, 19 years old, and J. Danarush @ Dhanaraj, 17 years old, all from Desa Latania, Shah Alam.
