Probably one of the largest amounts of cash lost to a snatch thief, a woman had her bag containing a whopping RM117,630 snatched.
In a video posted on Facebook by a restaurant in Taman Equine, Seri Kembangan, a woman is seen having a meal by herself at a table just by the entrance of the shop last Friday.
A snatch thief coming from the road approaches her from behind and snatches a red bag placed on the chair next to the woman. Swiftly, he gets into a car which speeds away, before the victim and people around her can react.
It is learnt that some of the money belonged to the victim and the rest were loans from family members.
A report was lodged at the Seri Kembangan police station.
Police said two Indonesian men have been detained to assist in investigations.
“We believe that there are more suspects and we are in the midst of tracking them down,” Serdang OCPD ACP Megat Mohamad Aminuddin Megat Alias told The Star.
