SHAH ALAM: Police have detained three people, including a couple, believed to be the masterminds in a scam involving reload transactions for Touch ’n Go cards.

Selangor Commercial CID chief Supt Ng Keok Chai said the suspects, aged between 28 and 30, were detained at a house in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara, Damansara, at 10.45am on Sunday.

The suspects were tracked down during their attempt to perform a reload transaction in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara, he added.

He said the arrests were made after a six-month surveillance of their activities following a report lodged by Touch ’n Go provider Rangkaian Segar Sdn Bhd on June 4.

Following their arrest, Supt Ng said the suspects led police to a house in Bandar Bukit Puchong, Puchong, where they seized several items, including 19 Touch ’n Go cards, two SmartTAG devices and a laptop.

“Investigations also revealed that the suspects committed fraud by reloading their Touch ’n Go cards up to RM500 but the cards were used by them only and not sold or distributed to others,” he added.

Supt Ng said following the report lodged by Rangkaian Segar, police advised the company to allow the transactions to go through to facilitate investigations.
