SHAH ALAM: Police have arrested four people including two women, alleged to be connected with the discovery of homemade bombs in a condominium unit in Damansara Perdana last month.
Selangor Police CID chief Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the four suspects, aged between 31 and 40 years were arrested in an apartment in Ampang at about 1 am on Saturday.
“In the raid, police also seized a BMW car bearing a fake registration number, some tools for break-in and global positioning system (GPS) trackers,” he said in a press conference here, today.
Mohd Adnan said they did not rule out the possibility that the bombs were used in burglary and illegal money lending activities.
