Tracing the global positioning system (GPS) installed in the vehicle, the police came to KM-438 northbound of the PLUS Highway. The two employees were abandoned by the roadside and the robbers had already fled the scene.

In an exclusive report by China Press, it is learned that the robbers took away about RM105,000 from the security van. However, they had left behind RM5 million which could be found in a safe in the van.

To put it into perspective, RM105k is only 2.1% of RM5 million.
