TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Police arrested two members of a gang of pickpockets from China at the Taipei 101 shopping mall, but a third one got away, reports said Tuesday.

The group had attracted the attention of the authorities during an earlier visit last year, but had been able to leave the country, the Central News Agency reported.

During analysis of potential perpetrators at popular tourist sites such as the National Palace Museum and Taipei 101, police became aware of a three-member gang of pickpockets from China.

They recently found out that the three men, named Gong (龔), 43, Chen (陳) and Li (黎), both 56, had re-entered the country via Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport on tourist visas.    [FULL  STORY]
