Samurai swords among items seized from Ah Longs at police road block


NIBONG TEBAL (29/12/2016): The police arrested two Ah Longs believed to be intimidating borrowers in an operation in Simpang Ampat and Tasek Mutiara here early Wednesday.
Seberang Perai Selatan (SPS) District police chief Supt Shafee Abdul Samad said police from the SPS Police Headquarters Commercial Crime Investigation Division arrested the two men, aged 20 and 21 at a road block during the operation codenamed 'Ops Vulture', held from 3am to 2pm.
"The two men were in a Toyota Hilux when they were arrested, and initial investigations revealed they were involved in four cases of splashing paint at borrowers' homes reported in the SPS area in order to intimidate them," he said here Wednesday night.
He said following the arrest of the two men, police raided their home in Taman Residensi Villa Mutiara, Simpang Ampat, near here, and seized various items believed to be used by the suspects to harass victims.
"Among the items seized were samurai swords, machetes, iron axes, bolt cutters, hammers, air guns, masks, debt notebooks, a paintball gas tank, paint thinners and cash amounting to RM6,274.
"The police seized several fake vehicle registration numbers, a Perodua Alza car believed to belong to a borrower, and a Toyota Hilux with a fake registration number," he said.
Shafee said the two men were believed to be members of an unlicensed moneylenders syndicate network, and police were also looking for several other accomplices.
He said the two men were believed to be active since early this year, and their role was to find borrowers and intimidate those who failed to pay their debt.
He said they were currently remanded for investigation under Section 29(B) and 5(2) of the Moneylenders Act 1951, Section 6(1) of the Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958, and Section 8 of the Firearms Act 1971. - Bernama
