KEPALA BATAS: One of the seven suspects who escaped on Monday while being taken to the Butterworth court was spotted at a petrol station on the Butterworth-Kulim Expressway about 2am Thursday.
A police source confirmed that Mohd Sharimy Nor (pix), 28, had gone to the petrol station to buy bread and a worker at the petrol station recognised him.
