TAIPEI (Taiwan News)–A Korean man was arrested on Sunday for allegedly
burglarizing the headquarters of Taiwan’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in Taipei and stealing more than NT$90,000 (about US$3,000) on Wednesday, police said.
The DPP earlier said in a statement that surveillance footage showed a man sneaking into the eighth floor of the party’s headquarters and stayed for more than 10 minutes. After a thorough check, the party said it suffered a loss of more than NT$90,000, but no documents, computers or other equipment were stolen.
Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) Forth Brigade deputy commander Tsai Po-hsi (蔡伯熙) said that police responded to a hot spring hotel in Wulai District, New Taipei City after receiving a tip-off about Cho Jun Ki’s whereabouts around 4 a.m. on Sunday. Cho was wanted by police in connection with the DPP burglary case.
