JOHOR BAHRU – Police crippled a syndicate known as “Geng Anak Bapak” that has been actively involved in carjacking, with the capture of three members here, on Monday.
North Johor Baharu Police chief ACP Mohd Taib Ahmad said the three who were detained included a father and son.
He said they were arrested at Skudai Kiri in Tampoi here, at about 5.20pm, as a follow up to the arrest of four members of the gang on June 18 at the same place.
