Three more nabbed in 'Gang Tuah' document-forging syndicate


IPOH (24/01/2017): Police yesterday nabbed three more people allegedly involved in 'Gang Tuah', a notorious Perak-based syndicate specialising in forging official government documents. 

State Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) chief Superintendent Lee Ewe Kiang said the trio were picked up at two separate locations in Kampung Rapat and Simpang Pulai.

Lee said that the arrests were made at 4.30pm, during which RM4,700 in cash and three fake road tax certificates were seized. 

"We believe that the suspects were the gang's customers, and the money was meant for the payment," he said. Lee added that the three suspects, aged between 43 and 59, have been remanded for four days starting from today.

 "(This is part of a follow-up) tracking down customers who bought fake official government documents from the syndicate. "We are also in the midst of tracing individuals who were the syndicate’s middle men," Lee said. 

Last Friday, police raided a house in Taman Maju Rapat here, which was the syndicate’s operations centre for processing fake government documents, such as MyKad, driving licenses, passports, vehicle road tax certificates and government hospital medical certificates (MCs).

A 43-year-old man, who is thought to be the leader, was nabbed. Following the arrest, police captured four other syndicate members in Padang Rengas, Kuala Kangsar and Pokok Assam, Taiping. Among them are a school teacher and a post office clerk.
