Bumbling bandits nabbed after trying to rob same store for second time in one night


SHAH ALAM --- First, they robbed a 24-hour convenience in Bukit Subang, making off with their precious haul of booze, cigarettes and snacks.

However, luck deserted them when they tried to rob the same store two hours later, as the police were already waiting for them.

That was the epic misadventure of a group of robbers, who called themselves ‘Gang Allen’, which led to their arrest on Tuesday.

The gang had first robbed the store in Bukit Subang at 3.30am. However, not satisfied with their haul, they decided to have another go at the same store two hours later.

Unfortunately for them, police, who had earlier been notified of the first robbery, were on hand to ‘greet’ them the second time around. Shah Alam district police chief ACP Shafien Mamat said the robbers were planning to cart away alcohol, cigarettes, snacks and other items.

“After questioning, we tracked down two other gang members in Kota Damansara later that evening,” he said. All six robbers were aged between 22 and 33. They tested negative for drugs and did not have any prior convictions.

“This was their first arrest. Our checks also showed that they were also involved in four other robberies in the same district,” he said.

The total losses from the five robbery cases amounted to RM15,000. Meanwhile, on another case, police have extended the remand order for four men recently arrested for impersonating Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry enforcement officers.

The remand expires tomorrow. KPDNKK enforcement director Mohd Roslan Mahayuddin said the ministry has standard of procedure (SOP) before issuing compounds on business operators.

He urged business operators to lodge police reports if they have been cheated or to call the ministry's hotline and file a complaint.

"This incident has tarnished the ministry's name. We do not condone such acts. This is not how we work," he said.
