JASIN: The police busted the Azizi Botak Gang, which was made up of four teenagers, one day after it broke into a mobile phone shop in Merlimau here, last Friday.
Jasin acting police chief DSP Shahidi Abdullah said the four, including the gang leader, aged 14 and 15, were nabbed in four locations in Merlimau last
He said one of the suspects was a Form Four student while the others were school dropouts, including the gang leader.
The four stole a laptop and a motorcycle worth RM3,500 from a house in Mile 15, Jalan Jasin last Wednesday, and three mobile phones belonging to customers and 23 used batteries from a mobile phone shop in the new Merlimau town the following day.
"The gang leader was picked up at his house in Merlimau where the police recovered stolen goods from the house and the mobile phone shop.
"The police also found four bicycles believed to be stolen in the Jasin district in his possession," he told reporters here today.
On the gang's modus operandi, he said one of the members would break into a house and a business premise through the back window or the roof before letting the others in through the front door.
Shahidi said the suspects, who were also believed to be involved in three other break-ins in Merlimau, were remanded for six days. Bernama
