Did This Really Happen?

I read with disbelief a report about a group of armed men who stormed into a showroom, overpowered 2 guards and fled with cash and new cars in Bandar Sungai Long, near Kajang early Tuesday morning.
They security guards were unarmed. The robber tied them up before fleeing with an undisclosed sum of money and five Honda cars worth over RM500,000.
There were about 15 of them, armed with parang and axes.

According to news reports, the guards freed themselves and called the police at about 7pm.
Kajang Deputy OCPD Supt Azman Ayob told reporters that the robbers spent more than three hours ransacking the premises and breaking into the showroom office to steal the money.

They then drove off in the cars three Honda Accords, a Honda CRV and a Honda Civic all without registered number plates.
The police are now going through the CCTV footage to assist in investigations.
The showroom started operations last year.

If this happened the way it was told, I am so dismayed. Can you imagine if this same group robs another showroom or a restaurant...? There is every likelihood. It's just a matter of when and where.

Thankfully, no one was hurt. It's not so much that they stole the vehicles and cash... but the fact  that 15 (or more) of them grouped together to commit the crime and, of course, got away with it.

I hope the police have already got leads...
