Special team formed to investigate RM1.17mil ATM heist
KUALA LUMPUR: The police have set up a special team to investigate the RM1.17 million heist from four automated teller machines (ATM) at a Carrefour hypermarket in Wangsa Maju here on Sunday.
Headed by Kuala Lumpur CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah, the team has been gathering information as it pursues the case.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Mohmad Salleh said the police had identified several suspects from a closed-circuit TV footage at the hypermarket.
"We will record statements from those concerned, the security guards, and the bank and staff filling the machines with money," he told a news conference after launching the Tinta Kor Suksis Universiti Malaya magazine here today.
On the arrest of a 31-year-old Egyptian man in connection with the case, he said the police released him today as there was no evidence on his involvement
in the case.
Mohmad said the police were trying to determine whether several ATM heists in the Klang Valley in the first half of the year were committed by the same
gang as the modus operandi was similar, but it was still too early to make an assumption.
The Wangsa Maju Carrefour's ATM heist last Sunday was the eight ATM robbery so far this year with losses amounted to RM1.8 million.
The others were RM80,000 stolen from an ATM at the Giant hypermarket in Taman Permata, Hulu Klang (June 22), RM47,000 taken from an ATM at the Subang Jaya commuter station (June 14), and RM37,520 carted away by a group of men using cable from an ATM in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi (June 1).
Elsewhere, robbers used metal melting equipment to steal RM61,000 from an ATM in the Universiti LRT station (May 26), an ATM with RM200,000 was stolen
from a shopping complex in Balakong (May 25), and RM190,000 taken by robbers from an ATM at the Mid Point Ampang Shopping Complex (April 29). Bernama
