Heightened security leads cops to 26 wanted suspects

TWENTY-SIX wanted suspects were nabbed after city police beefed up citywide security checks and patrols for the six-day trial run of the World Expo, the police reported yesterday.

Shanghai Public Security Bureau said a total of 115 people were caught with contraband during the trial run after police beefed up the security in the city's airports and railway, Metro and long-distance transport stations during the Expo trial period, which began April 20 and ended Monday.

The police said the average daily road volume entering Shanghai was an estimated 160,000 - 3 percent more before the trial started.

About 30 percent of incoming vehicles had applied for fast-track passes, which sped up checks at the toll gates.

The police said the traffic at the check points was satisfactory and none of the waiting lines were longer than a kilometer.

Since April 17, police said, they caught 49 suspects for alleged credit card crimes and captured 38 point-of-sale machines, 221 suspect cards and 790,000 yuan (US$115,742) in illicit money.

The suspects had illegally used the cards 100,000 times involving about 800 million yuan, police told reporters.
