SHAH ALAM: Police are still hunting for four robbers who had carted away RM1.2 million worth of jewellery from a goldsmith shop in a shopping mall in Section 14 on Nov 17.

Shah Alam district police chief Assistant Commissioner Shafien Mamat said investigations are ongoing.

“A team of investigators are in the midst of studying the closed circuit television recordings (CCTV) obtained from the goldsmith shop as well as the shopping mall.

“The images, however, are unclear. We will look into others sources to track them down,” Shafien told the New Straits Times today.

He added that they have also recorded the statement of the security guard on duty at the goldsmith shop.

Investigators found that the security guard had no links to the robbery.

In the heist at 7.30pm, it took only seven minutes for the three robbers, clad in all-black outfits with gloves and full-faced motorcycle helmets, to scoop up seven trays containing RM1.2 million worth of jewellery.

Another accomplice stood guard outside the mall.

One of the robbers fired a shot before they used sledgehammers to break the jewellery display showcases and cabinets.

The robbers escaped on three motorcycles parked near the mall’s entrance.

Investigations are carried out under Section 3 of the Firearms (Increased Penalties) Act 1971 for discharging a firearm.
