Police nab fraud suspect with new name

CITY police said yesterday a fugitive who changed his name and identity to avoid capture has been apprehended.

The man, Han Luyang, was wanted for involvement in a 450,000 yuan (US$70,862) contract fraud in the city four years ago, but police lost track of him after he changed his name, using a new identification card, and returned to Shanghai.

Jing'an District police said Han cheated a company in 2007, fleeing with a 450,000 yuan down payment.

Han was caught in 2008 but was later bailed for lack of evidence. By the time police compiled more evidence and issued an arrest warrant, Han had disappeared.

Shen Jiandong, a Jing'an police official, said new information came to light this year when Han's parents registered residency in the city's Xuhui District.

Police found a man named Han Zhaonian was the owner of an apartment occupied by Han's nephew. Han Zhaonian turned out to be Han Luyang, who had changed his name and even obtained a passport, traveling on business to Hong Kong and Malaysia.

When Han was arrested in August in the Pudong New Area, he owned two apartments and two cars - property worth a total of more than 6 million yuan.

City police have detained more than 3,300 suspects, some at large for years, during the five-month "network cleaning" campaign that ended on Wednesday.
