KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 (Bernama) -- Police believe they have crippled the
''Geng Hong'' syndicate believed to have been actively involved in carjacking and
house break-ins, with the arrest of seven suspects in Genting Highlands, Pahang
and Cheras here on June 8 and 14.
Cheras Police Chief ACP Mohan Singh Tara Singh said five suspects,
including two women were detained and two BMW, a proton Savy, a Honda Odyssey
and a Honda Civic car was seized together with a lap top, hand phones, car keys
and tools used for breaking into houses.
"The five suspects comprising three men and two women were detained in
Genting Highlands on June 8, before two more members of the syndicate were
detained in Cheras on June 14," he told reporters here today.
Mohan said police believe the arrest of the seven would be able to solve at
least 17 robbery and carjacking cases in Cheras, Brickfields, Kajang and Gombak.
The modus operandi of the syndicate is to break into houses when owners are
away and escape with valuables and any car parked in the house compound.
