Maran OCPD deputy superintendent Norzamri Abd Rahman told the daily that raids against the group known as Geng Mamat were conducted at three locations on Aug 5 after receiving a public tip-off.
He said that three men and a woman have been held on suspicion of stealing equipment worth RM30,000 from the ECRL sites.
