85 Crypto Machines Were Stolen in Malaysia


Malaysian authorities have apprehended five men charged with stealing 85 bitcoin machines.

Malaysian authorities arrested five men accused of stealing 85 bitcoin machines. Police arrested the men during a police raid on November 2nd.

The Sun Daily reported that four men and a woman rented a building in Seremban, Malaysia, adjacent to a warehouse that stores bitcoin machines. Five people drilled through a concrete wall connecting the two buildings. All suspects were friends without criminal records.

Valued at $ 10,300 each, the machines are most likely bitcoin mining rigs, though not specified by the local police.

On October 29, a shop owner filed a police report after losing 85 bitcoin machines, Ser Serban’s police chief, Supt Mohd Said Ibrahim, told a news conference. The police then raided and arrested the suspects, aged 25 to 46 years old.

The raids took place last Saturday night, from midnight to 5:00 am local time. Authorities confiscated a car, a four-wheel vehicle and heavy equipment believed to have been used to drill through concrete.

The suspects have not yet been convicted.
