A gunman who robbed a jewelry store of more than 300,000 yuan (US$47,600) worth of goods in Huizhou, a city in southern Guangdong Province was captured yesterday morning, local police said.
The Henan Province native surnamed Cai, 37, allegedly robbed the store around 9:30am on January 30 with a self-made shotgun and escaped with 1,173 grams of jewelry valued over 300,000 yuan.
Cai was seized in a village near Daya Bay yesterday morning and police found a shotgun with four bullets and all the robbed jewelries in his rented house.
Police DNA tests showed the blood stains on a bag Cai left near the crime scene matched the DNA of blood collected at the scene of another jewelry store robbery he committed in Henan Province in 2004, local media said.
