China Daily - - CHINA -

A man, sur­named Su, who at­tempted to bur­gle the home of his for­mer neigh­bor, sur­named Li, was foiled when Li dis­cov­ered him and pulled down his mask. Li, 70, called po­lice when he found the thief was Su, who once lived down­stairs but had moved away three years ear­lier. Af­ter Su was de­tained, he ad­mit­ted he planned to rob Li as he knew the vic­tim lived alone. It was also dis­cov­ered that Su, 50, had bur­gled two drug­stores this year and stole goods val­ued at more than 26,000 yuan ($4,140).
