An active gang in Tseung Kwan O expanding recruitment of new forces leads police to launch an operation to prevent chaos. Basing on received intelligence, yesterday morning, police raided the district arresting nine people, including a big brother of the gang. Police also uncovered arsenals in abandoned truck finding a large number of sharp knives.

 

The gang has been in existence for many years in Tseung Kwan O. Currently, their headquarter is near the vicinity of Hang Hau. The gang mainly survives by collecting protection fees, and selling drugs mainly to students. Because Kowloon East Regional Anti-triad Unit receives intelligence that the gang continues to recruit new blood, police starts in-depth investigations. Yesterday at four o'clock afternoon, about 100 police from Anti-Traid Unit, Intelligence Unit and the Police Tactical Unit launch an operation code-named "Eye of Heaven", holding a list of wanted gangsters searching everywhere in Hang Hau to arrest nine men (15 to 41 years old), including a 'big brother'. In addition, the police discovers arsenals in an abandoned van in the village car park. They also uncover a total of 17 weapons, including water pipes, machetes with handles wrapped in cloth, diving knives, in the hillside and village's office. Police believes hidden weapons are used to prevent ambush from a gang nearby. In the operation, small amount of drugs, cigarettes, and a computer that could contain evidence of the gang's crime, are uncovered as well.

 

'Big Brother' arrested has last name Wong (41 years old), not a local resident of Hang Hau, and has been recruiting new blood in mass recently. He and other arrested persons are Triad members, being detained for charges of wounding and possession of offensive weapons. Hoping to uproot the entire organization, Police says the action against the gangs will continue.

Wow! Are you serious? Triad members got arrested by HK police. That's rarely happen. But still I have to appreciate their work in protecting the safety of our lives.

lol. Wannabe triad members, I think, not important enough and evidently not clever enough in HK which is why they got caught.
