In addition to ASICs, the police also confiscated monitors, central processing units (CPUs), modems and other equipment.

A 28-year-old man who is believed to be responsible for overseeing the farm has been nabbed by the police. He has been remanded in custody for four days to assist with the investigation.

In July, more than 1,000 Bitcoin mining machines were brutally crushed by a steamroller at a Malaysian police station.
