Shanghai police began to investigate the case after January 24, when the suspects broke in a residential area on Wenshui Road E. twice and stole watches and diamond rings worth 400,000 yuan, police said.

Chen was in charge of selling the spoils and providing accommodation for the suspects while another suspect surnamed Zhu directed the burglaries, police found during the investigation.

After locating the suspects, police raided their hideout in Nanjing and found spoils such as a diamond ring, an iPad Mini, 1 million South Korean won (US$921), more than 10,000 yuan and gold jewelry, police said.
