Tyre hijackers arrested
The Malay Mail reports that four armed intruders forced their way into a used-tyre factory in the township of Bandar Bukit Puchong, Malaysia, overpowering a security guard, who was bound and gagged, before driving off with a trailer loaded with 319 tyres.
The security guard, who sustained injuries on his hands, legs and body, managed to free himself and contacted the police.
Following a tip-off, police spotted the trailer 26 kilometres from where it was stolen and staked out the area. Police later spotted four men approaching the location and arrested them as one opened the trailer door. Two of the four were believed to be buyers of the stolen tyres.
