Police on Monday seized a stockpile of illegal guns and ammunition, and
arrested a man on suspicion of running a firearm factory in Taoyuan, the Criminal Investigation Bureau announced yesterday.
The bureau coordinated with Taipei and Taoyuan police to conduct the raid on a rented house in Yangmei District (楊梅).
“The factory was in the basement and is quite a sophisticated operation, with assorted machinery for modifying and producing firearms,” said Captain Su Li-tsung (蘇立琮) of the bureau’s First Investigation Corps.
The suspect is a 52-year-old mechanic named Tai Kuo-chang (戴國璋), who has a criminal record for embezzlement and burglary, Su said. [FULL STORY]
