Hmm.. maybe these aunties have been watching too many heist movies and got inspired? Because according to Bernama, police detained two women for staging a robbery of RM20,400 belonging to their employer.
Seberang Perai Utara (SPU) district police chief ACP Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the two women had confidently reported that they were robbed last Monday while on their way to a bank to deposit the money.
Police got suspicious of the alleged robbery after watching a CCTV recording of the incident. Perhaps it’s the bad acting? We’ll never know..
But the whole plan terkantoi when one of the women, aged 53, admitted to having staged the robbery after some questioning by the police. Apparently, she needed the money to settle her debts with loan sharks.
ACP Noorzainy said they had also arrested three men, aged between 19 and 25, who “robbed” the two women. When the whole thing blew its cover, the men then admitted that they had been paid RM4,000 each by the two women to stage the whole thing.
Moral of the story? Life is not a movie y’all.
