KUANTAN: An officer with the rank of commander in an enforcement agency, was among five people detained by the police in connection with a robbery on a Vietnamese fishing boat in the waters off Rompin, near here on Wednesday.
Rompin police chief DSP Azli Mohd Noor said the 30-year-old suspect, his two siblings as well as a 56-year-old man and his 20-year-old son were detained in Nenasi, Pekan near here on the same day.
The main suspect's elder brother, 31, is a teacher while their 28-year-old younger brother is a junior general assistant at an oil palm-related agency.
"The five suspects, armed with a pistol, boarded the fishing boat and introduced themselves as enforcement personnel. The robbers left the boat taking with them RM10,000 cash and its one-tonne catch," Azli said in a statement here today.
Azli said the suspects had been remanded until Oct 30 to facilitate investigations under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code. — Bernama
