Police thwart gang war, detain 93, seize weapons

17:08 | , ,

WHAT threatened to become a bloody gangland clash between two rival secret societies early today, ended in a whimper when the police threw a spanner in its works. The police rounded up 93 people, including teenagers, who tried to incite a fight in Gurney Drive, over a battle for 'territorial rights'. The suspects, aged between 16 and 42, and armed with samurai swords, machetes, baseball bats and knuckle-dusters, among others, belonged to the 'Gang 04' and 'Gang 24' secret societies. Initial police investigations revealed the gangs had completed their so-called 'table-talk' to seize 'territories' and were set to fight it out to determine which among them would lord over the said territories. Penang police deputy chief SAC Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar said, acting on information, a team of policemen conducted simultaneous raids on two locations near Gurney Drive about 12.30am. He said, most of those detained were from 'Gang 04' while the rest were members of 'Gang 24'." We are confident the arrests could help solve 25 criminal cases including extortion, housebreaking and robbery, which were committed since January this year. "Nevertheless, we believe several gang members managed to escape when they became aware of the police presence," he told reporters here. In the raid, the police seized an assortment of weapons such as samurai swords, machetes, paper cutters, baseball bats and knuckle-dusters. Abdul Rahim said, 43 of the suspects tested positive for drugs and were remanded for further investigations. He urged those who had fallen victim to the gangs to lodge a report at the nearest police station to facilitate investigations.
