Selangor police chief Datuk Mazlan Mansor said the first suspect was nabbed in Kampung Paya Jaras, Sungai Buloh near here about 4.30pm.
Following interrogation, he said, the man led to the arrest of four others and an Indonesian in Sungai Buloh and Segambut in Kuala Lumpur, with the last arrest about 4am.
According to Mazlan, preliminary findings revealed the first suspect has nine criminal records, including violence, drugs and offences under the 2015 Crime Prevention Act, while the Indonesian is wanted by the police for a drug case.
