Police officers from Taoyuan City’s Pingzhen Branch had long been attempting to track a 50-year-old man named Zheng, who was suspected of being part of a gun trading syndicate. Zheng was of no fixed abode and constantly on the move. Yesterday, November 28, police were informed that Zheng was staying at a motel in Xitun District, Taichung City.
A police team swooped on the motel and broke down the door to Zheng’s room, immediately restraining him before he could reach for a weapon.
In Zheng’s bag, police found a Beretta pistol loaded with expanding (dumdum) bullets, and a revolving shotgun with 10 shotgun shells. [FULL STORY]
