Smash-and-grab sus­pects ar­rested in HK

China Daily European Weekly - - NEWS DIGEST -

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.
