KUALA LUMPUR: Four robbers armed with a pistol and hammers escaped with 10 trays of jewellery worth RM700,000 from a goldsmith shop in Sungai Chua, Kajang near here today.
Kajang deputy police chief Supt Abdul Ghani Mohamad Ji said the robbers took only two minutes to commit the crime.
"There were two workers in the shop during the 4 pm robbery. One of the suspects fired a shot at the bullet-proof glass panel in the shop, while another robber broke the glass display cabinets with a hammer before all of them ran off with 10 trays of jewellery," he told reporters at the scene.
Abdul Ghani said all of the suspects wore full-faced helmets and jackets.
Investigation is being done and police are studying the footage from the shop's closed circuit television cameras to identify the suspects, he said.
