IPOH: Police investigating the robbery of a money changer business at Jalan Mustafa Al-Bakri here are scrutinising closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage of the crime, District police chief ACP Sum Chang Keong said today.

He also revealed that two fake pistols were discovered at the scene.

"The fake pistols, believed to have been used by the suspects, were found inside and outside the premises.

"The investigation is underway," Sum said.

In the 6.45pm incident, three robbers wearing motorcycle helmets and masks, and armed with pistols (which later were discovered to be fake) held up the business’ security guard, before seizing his pump gun.

The men then ordered one of the employees to open the business’ safe and empty it of its contents.

The trio fled with RM2 million worth of multiple currencies in a Toyota Hilux.
