Taipei, Nov. 23 (CNA) Seven suspects have been arrested in Taichung and Hualien in connection with the murders in the past three years of a man and a girl whose bodies were stuffed into concrete-filled plastic drums, police in Taichung reported Monday.

The cases came to light mainly because a friend of one of the members of the crime gang involved in the case tipped off the police, leading to the discovery of the drums and the arrests of seven suspects last week.

The main suspect surnamed Hsu (徐) was arrested in Hualien while the others were arrested in Taichung, but the police did not provide any further details on when the tip-off or the arrests occurred.

Six of the arrested suspects were handed over to the Taichung District Prosecutors Office, whose request to detain them was approved by the district court, according to Taichung police.
