Rifles, bullets seized from yacht in Langkawi

ALOR SETAR: Police seized five rifles and hundreds of bullets from a yacht owned by a South African national who has gone missing at a jetty in Langkawi last Thursday.
State police chief Datuk Zamri Yahya said three telescopic sights and silencers were also recovered from the yacht.


"The sailboat was left at the Rebak Marina jetty since last August by its owner.


"Upon inspection with the Immigration Department we also found out that the South African national had already left Malaysia," he told reporters.


He said all the firearms, ammunition and equipment were hidden in a bedroom at the rear of the boat.


When asked if the items seized had any links to militant activities, Zamri said police were still investigating the motive.

Updated story: Firearms seized from yacht - Nation | The Star Online

ALOR SETAR: Police seized five rifles and two pistols from a foreign-owned yacht left idle in Langkawi.
The vessel belongs to a South African who is wanted for a criminal case in his home country.
Kedah police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Zambri Yahya said police were asked by the management officials of a marina to check on the yacht after it was left unattended since August last year.


The vessel was meant to be docked at the marina for only three months.


SDCP Zambri said a marine police team boarded the Crescent at 5.10pm on Thursday.
“We found five rifles, two silencers, three rifle scopes, three magazines and 900 rounds of ammunition. The ship belongs to a man who had a criminal record in his home country,” he told reporters yesterday.


SDCP Zambri said the case was being investigated under the Firearms Act 1960 for storing firearms without a valid permit.


He added checks were also being made to see whether the incident was linked to a case on the island on Sept 18, 2014, where police raided a yacht and arrested a 43-year-old South African and a Thai woman.


Seven rifles and several hundred rounds of ammunition were seized from the ship
