KOTA KINABALU: Police have launched a manhunt for two members of a machete gang involved in a dawn raid on a convenience store.

The dragnet follows the arrest of two other suspected members of the gang who were caught on CCTV during the robbery.

The nabbed suspects resisted arrest when a team from the Crime Investigation Division tracked them down to a house in Taman Puri Warisan, Inanam here yesterday.

During a violent struggle, a policeman was injured, said city police chief ACP M Chandra. “The suspects had behaved aggressively.”

The duo, aged 26 and 36 were apprehended, and cops seized clothes believed to have been worn during the robbery and a Toshiba laptop.

The raid on the 24-hour store in Manggatal took place at about 5.29am last Friday, said Chandra. The machete-wielding robbers fled with a cash register containing RM795.40, and two Samsung handphones. Total losses were put at RM3,000.

Chandra said the arrested duo tested positive for drugs, and both have a string of previous convictions. The 26-year-old has two convictions under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 while the 36-year-old was convicted in three theft-related cases (Section 379, 380 and 457 of the Penal Code) and two drug-related cases under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs act 1952.

“We also believe the duo were involved in at least four house break-ins in Kota Kinabalu and one in Keningau,” said Chandra.

The latest robbery is being investigated under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code and if found guilty, the suspects face up to 20 years in jail, and whippings.

They will also be investigated under Section 15(1)(a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952 and if found guilty, can be fined up to RM5,000 or jailed up to two years.
