Photographs of a friend lead police to suspects

THREE men suspected of a city robbery have been detained, thanks to pictures police found at a crime scene.

The suspects, 19-year-olds from Jiangxi Province, were caught on September 20.

On September 6, a man was robbed at knifepoint near an ATM machine in Jiading District.

Two days later city police were alerted to a similar case in Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. The robbers left a bag at the scene and inside was a memory stick with pictures of a man police subsequently traced. He was not involved, but suspicion fell on his friend.

The friend, Ye Xiaobing, had rented a room with two other men near the scene of the Jiading robbery. The three were also in the area where the Hangzhou robbery took place.

Ye, Zhou Jiangming and Xu Mumu were caught waiting outside a bank in Yiwu in Zhejiang Province.
