World Briefing / AND FINALLY . . .

But the car gets great mileage

September 30, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Two armed robbers hijacked a security van with $1.3 million inside but were forced to abandon more than half the cash because their stolen getaway car was too small to carry it all, Malaysian police said.

The robbers were still at large with $524,000 after the heist near Kuala Lumpur, said district police chief Shakaruddin Che Mood.

"The bags are quite big. I consider them quite stupid. Their planning was very shortsighted," Shakaruddin said.
