The police have crippled a group which broke into houses and left faeces behind.

According to Gombak police chief ACP Samsor Maarof, the trio aged between 34 and 37, were involved in at least three house-breaking cases in Bandar Tasik Puteri Kundang in Rawang, Selangor. 

The suspects, including an Indonesian woman, were arrested in Rawang and Selayang in the wee hours of this morning, he was quoted saying by Bernama

"The group's modus operandi was to use a screwdriver to prise open a house window or toilet window before entering a house.

"After obtaining valuables, the suspect will defecate in the house for the purpose of scaring the victim into believing that they were victims of black magic," Samsor was quoted saying. 

The group, headed by a man known as 'Cicak', would then sell their booty to their acquaintances at around RM50 to RM100 each, he said.

The group had been active from the beginning of the year.

One of the male suspects has a criminal record of 12 past offences, involving drug and criminal cases, while the other male suspect tested positive for syabu.
