Four robbers make off with S$36,000 in jewellery

PETALING JAYA - Robbers struck at a jewellery shop at a hypermarket here, stealing RM100,000 (S$36,000) worth of gold items on the first day of Hari Raya.

Witnesses said the four men, obscuring their faces with visored helmets, entered the shop on the ground floor of the hypermarket, where one of them pointed what appeared to be a gun at the shop assistants.

The other three began smashing the glass displays with hammers and scooping gold lockets, necklaces and rings into their bags.

The heist only took three minutes, before the men were seen fleeing the scene in a silver MyVi.

There were no security guards at the mall at the time, said Petaling Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Fadil Marsus.

Asked to describe the culprits, he said they were "slightly chubby", of average height and could be in their 30s.

They wore jeans, short sleeved T-shirts and gloves.
