Man stole, sold TCM in­gre­di­ents, po­lice say

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A na­tive of Nan­chong, Li Ming, was ar­rested for dam­ag­ing six locks at a drug­store in Luzhou in early De­cem­ber to steal pre­cious tra­di­tional Chi­nese medicine in­gre­di­ents, in­clud­ing Chi­nese cater­pil­lar fungi and the birds’ nests. The shop owner claimed that she suf­fered a loss of nearly 1 mil­lion yuan ($165,000). Po­lice said Li sold some of the stolen fungi cheaply — 700 grams of fungi for only 70,000 yuan, a frac­tion of its real value on the mar­ket.
