Lahad Datu: Three arrested in Sandakan over intrusion
SANDAKAN: The police have arrested three men who were seen behaving suspiciously in Kampung Sim-Sim water village here after receiving tip-offs from residents.
Sandakan police chief ACP Rowell Marong said the trio was held Monday under the Security Offences Act (Special Measures) 2012 over alleged involvement in the Lahad Datu intrusion.
"Their identities have yet to be determined but no weapons were found on them," he said when contacted.
Rowell urged the people to report suspicious characters to the police but to refrain from blowing certain incidents out of proportion.
Police are keeping the water village under surveillance following the arrest. - Bernama
