TWO not-very-clever snatch thieves grabbed a handbag of a bank officer and later used her MyKad and savings book to withdraw money from the bank where she was working.
Both were caught in the act by the police, Sin Chew Daily reported.
The incident happened at Sungai Buloh KTM station in the morning when the thieves snatched the handbag of the officer who was on her way to work.
The victim managed to get to her office after a Good Samaritan paid the fare and informed her colleagues of her ordeal, it reported.
About two hours later, a colleague was shocked when a woman tried to use the victim's MyKad and savings book to withdraw money.
The colleague told the woman she needed time to process the withdrawal and informed the bank manager.
The other suspect, who was waiting for the woman outside the bank, then came in to check on her.
The bank manager informed the police who detained both suspects. ~THE STAR
