Goldsmith shop in Alor Setar robbed of RM200k jewellery

ALOR SETAR: A man wearing crash helmet and wielding an axe robbed jewellery valued at about RM200,000 from a goldsmith shop at a supermarket in Alor Mengkudu last night.

Kedah police chief Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob said that during the incident at about 7.30 pm, the man barged into the shop and smashed the glass display counter.

“It looked like he was carrying a firearm, but no shot was fired,” he told reporters after attending the opening of Kedah Police Contingent headquarters here today.

It was opened by the Sultan of Kedah, Al Aminul Karim Sultan Sallehuddin Sultan Badlishah.
