Robbers make off with RM200,000 in jewellery

A jewellery outlet in Jalan Ibrahim near here lost about RM200,000 after it was robbed by two armed men this evening.

Kuala Muda District police chief ACP Adzli Abu Shah said one of the suspects entered the premises at 2.50pm wearing a helmet. He was armed with a pistol and a hammer.

‘’There were four workers including the shop owner and two customers at the premises. The suspect took out his hammer from his sling bag and started breaking the glass exhibition case.

‘’The owner used a rattan to stab at the robber from within the enclosure in the shop but it did not deter the robber from clearing out the jewellery from the exhibition case before running away,’’ he told reporters here today.
