|Xinpu Police Arrest Suspects for Possessing Drugs and A Firearm||1241||F.A.S.||2014-12-16|
Police officers from Xinpu Police Station of Xinpu Precinct went to visit a man surnamed Chen, who is on the criminal list of people who have been convicted of drug crimes, for a compulsory urine test, and they unexpectedly found a bag of heroine, amphetamine, and a modified gun along with bullets as well as making arresting three other suspects in the house.
The convict, Chen, had several times broken the injunction of regular urine tests in the police station, for which the Xinpu Precinct applied a warrant for a compulsory urine test for Chen. The Chief of the Xinpu Police Station, Shih, Hua-Wei (施華煒), and police officers, Chung, Chih-Chieh (鐘志傑), Shen, Chia-Wen (申嘉文), Chang, Hsiang-Wen (張享文) were sent for the enforcement of the warrant. The officers asked Chen to drink some water in order to do the urine test and they noticed that there was no water coming out from the water dispenser.
Chen repeatedly told the officers that “there’s no water! You should go to the fridge for water!”, but this had raised the officers’ suspicion. The lid of the tank of the water dispenser was not covered properly so the officers opened it and surprisingly discovered a container in which there was a bag of heroine weighing 15.4g, and a bag of amphetamine weighing 0.63g, which in total was valued of $NT 140 thousand dollars. Furthermore, another bag was discovered in the tank in which a modified gun and bullets were found. The officers expanded the search and found three suspects in the house who confessed to possessing the gun, drug, drug taking tools, and syringes. The suspects were then all brought back to the police station for further investigation.
The Chief of Xinpu Precinct, Wu, Wen-Kuei (吳文貴), praised the officers of Xinpu police station for their dedication on crime investigation and social order maintenance. Chief Wu further calls on the members of the public to work together with the officers to terminate the criminal activities and if they notice anything suspicious, they should notify the police by calling 110. “The police are always here to be of help”, Chief Wu said.
