5 held after masked gang bind guards

POLICE said yesterday that they have detained five men in connection with a robbery on Chinese New Year's Eve in which guards were bound and their cash taken.

Masked men armed with knives broke into the security room of a hardware company in Jiading District early on January 22.

They were trying to steal hundreds of thousand yuan of worth raw materials but fled with 1,200 yuan (US$190) taken from two security guards after being disturbed, police said.

"I was just about to check outside, when masked burst in," one of the guard surnamed Wang told police. "At knifepoint we had to give them all the cash we had on."

Officers said the gang was trying to steal 500,000 yuan worth of raw materials and that it was familiar with the company, knowing to target expensive raw materials.
