Smash-and-grab suspects arrested in HK
Hong Kong police have arrested all three suspects who they said smashed jewelry shop windows and grabbed goods worth more than HK$40 million ($5.1 million; 4.1 million euros; £3.6 million) in one of the city’s busiest commercial districts. A 39-year-old man was arrested on March 26 just 600 meters from the scene, and most of the stolen goods were found, said Sin Kwok-ming, chief inspector of the Police Regional Crime Unit of Hong Kong Island. The other two suspects, ages 38 and 45, were arrested at Shenzhen Bay Port later on March 26 as they were attempting to flee to the Chinese mainland on separate crossborder buses, a police spokeswoman said. The three had entered Hong Kong on tourist visas, she said. The theft took place at around 11 am at the Treasure Jewellery store on the ground floor of Duke Wellington House in the Central district.
