Chinese Thieves Steal Bridge | Sankaku Complex



Thieves who stole a 17.5m long stone bridge one night have finally been arrested, although they sold the bridge on before it could be recovered.

In November, villagers in the environs of Shanghai reported that the Fengle bridge, a historic 17.5m long stone bridge built in 1907, had disappeared, leaving only two supports standing.

Police eventually solved the mystery when they received a report from someone who had witnessed them dismantling the bridge in September, and had taken down their truck’s registration details.

After tracing the truck’s owner, they were told it had been loaned to the thieves, allowing police to effect the arrest of the two men responsible.

The local police chief says they admit making off with the bridge by cover of night:

“The two men confessed that they used two cranes and two trucks that night to lift and remove the 16 stone pieces that formed the floor of the bridge.”

The stone remains of the bridge were subsequently sold in another province, with the thieves having been paid some 30,000 yuan ($4,700) by a trader to make off with the structure.

A local museum official comments that the area only has 20 bridges left, of the 100 counted a century ago – roads, ruin and theft are cited as causes of this decline. Plans are afoot to rebuild the stolen structure.

Chinese Walnuts “Made From Cement” | Sankaku Complex

Even the Chinese are aghast at their latest innovation – walnuts with tooth cracking cement fillings have apparently been recovered, the effort and cost of obtaining real nuts seemingly being greater than the trouble of making convincing fakes.

According to reports, the walnuts were on sale in a Henan province market, and consisted of a cement kernel with the outer shell glued on. The cement was wrapped in paper so as to prevent the “nut” from rattling suspiciously.

via Chinese Gangster’s Jailbreak Humiliates Police | Sankaku Complex

Police think he easily scaled the exercise yard’s 2.6m high wall, and then cunningly climbed over the scaffolding covering the prison’s single 3-8m high perimeter wall, which was undergoing extensive construction work and evidently not under very thorough supervision.

His escape came to light after guards noticed he was absent from an exercise roll call, and a member of the public reported seeing a figure getting up from the ground outside the prison and fleeing the site, which is in the midst of a residential neighbourhood.

The entire escape took under 10 minutes; police say none of the facility’s cameras managed to record his actual escape as it took place in a blind spot, and there were no cameras at all monitoring the perimeter wall.

98 cameras were being monitored by a single warden, who did not notice anything was amiss until he rechecked the footage after the incident was already over. A single camera recorded someone poking his head out of a man-sized gap between two buildings.

The prison “regrets the fact that we left blind spots in the camera coverage.”

An alarm system was present at the perimeter wall, but it had been turned off whilst construction was ongoing. He simply avoided other alarms in the facility.

He was clad in white prison scrubs when he escaped, but left them at the wall and ran off in his underwear with no money – although as the prison is surrounded by dense housing, obtaining fresh clothing is unlikely to be challenging.

He is believed to be a member of the “Dragons,” a Japanese ethnic Chinese criminal gang with yakuza and pachinko industry connections.

As well as attempted murder and various weapons offences, he is thought to have been behind ¥68,000,000 in thefts from 9 pachinko parlours and post offices from 2004-5.

Hiroshima police have already mobilised 160 officers to hunt for him, although as he looks like virtually every other craggy middle-aged Japanese male they have received a deluge of sightings but no actual useful information.

Police suspect he will be able to receive assistance from his gang, further complicating his recapture.

Local authorities have been driven into a frenzy of panic, with police issuing their highest priority wanted level and 92 local schools ordering all pupils to make their way to and from school in groups, in case he mysteriously decides to attack any children.

Those less crazed with panic at the thought of an evil Chinese monster on the loose have been wondering just how the prison managed to let one of its wards climb over a wall and away, and on a more basic level why they had to situate a prison in the middle of a densely populated residential neighbourhood in the first place.
