The Pahang police and TNB SEAL team just busted and seized an illegal cryptomining operation, and arrested a suspect there!
Illegal Bitcoin Cryptomining Operation Seized!
On 9 February 2021, the Pahang police D7 JSJ team and the TNB SEAL team (seriously, that’s what they call themselves) busted and seized an illegal Bitcoin cryptomining operation.
The Bitcoin cryptomining operation occupied two shoplots in a three storey building at Batu 3, Jalan Gambang in Kuantan, Pahang.
The police also arrested a suspect who was found at the cryptomining operation.
According to the Pahang Deputy Chief of Police Dato’ Mohd Yusri bin Hj. Hassan Basri, the suspect had illegally tapped into the electricity at both premises, and will be investigated under :
- Section 379 of the Penal Code for stealing electricity
- Section 427 of the Penal Code for committing treason
We should point out that cryptomining is not illegal in Malaysia, whether it’s for Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.
What’s illegal is the theft of electricity to run such cryptomining operations for maximum profit.
That’s why the TNB SEAL team was involved, and not just the police.
