KUALA LUMPUR: Three police personnel believed to be from the General Operations Force of the Central Brigade were arrested after being suspected of stealing a total of RM85,000 from a business premises during an integrated operation on Jalan Silang last Thursday.

Kuala Lumpur Police Chief Datuk Allaudeen Abdul Majid said the three officers, aged 26, 30, and 35, have been remanded for four days starting yesterday to assist in the investigation under Section 380 of the Penal Code.

“At 12:36 midnight last Friday, the police received a report of the loss of cash amounting to RM85,000 at a business premises on Lebuh Pudu here, during an integrated operation to address foreign nationals conducted by the authorities.

“This case is still under investigation, and the public is urged not to make any speculations that could disrupt the investigation and cause public anxiety,” he said in a statement here today.
It is understood that the three officers were recorded conducting a search at the premises by closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras installed, but it was not included in the report.

As a result of the arrests, the police reportedly seized RM63,500 in cash, a Perodua Myvi car, two mobile phones, and receipts for the purchase of tires and vehicle maintenance.
In the integrated operation on Jalan Silang from 11 am to 3 pm, a total of 1,101 foreign nationals were detained for various immigration offenses, including lacking travel documents.
