Two extras who appeared in the movie Kabali were among three suspects, arrested for a burglary in Shah Alam, Malaysia.
Shah Alam Assistant Commissioner Shafien Mamat said on Friday that a task force arrested two members of a gang operating in Section 19, Shah Alam, at 12.30pm on Oct 13, according to a report by Justin Zack in The Star Online.
Police recovered some stolen items from Puchong and Sunway after investigations found pawnshop receipts for stolen jewellery on the duo.
Two of the gang members aged 31 and 34, had played extras in the Rajinikanth-starrer Kabali, which was mainly filmed in Malaysia.
ACP Shafien said that the two also tested positive for drugs, the report adds.
On October 19, an Indonesian gang member in his 40s, was apprehended.
The report says that the gang has been found to be involved in 11 cases and their victims have been summoned to verify the stolen goods.
The gang breaks into houses that are empty and is believed to have been active since April.
The items, including jewellery and electronics, retrieved so far are worth RM 60,000, ACP Shafien said.
