Police nab gang after tip-off on fake passes

LOCAL police have busted a gang making counterfeit fast-track passes which will be needed by vehicles entering the city from Thursday, officers said yesterday.

Seven gang members have been detained, said officers in Baoshan District where they were caught.

"The fake passes were very like the genuine ones," said a police spokesman.

On Monday, officers caught suspect Chen Yun in a parking lot after a tip-off.

Chen was selling fake passes for 150 yuan (US$22) each, officers said. He had three passes which he said he had bought from a man called Liu Xiaopeng.

Liu was apprehended at his home at 12:45am on Wednesday and police found more than 5,000 fakes there.

Liu's relatives, including his wife, are also in custody.

Genuine passes entitle vehicles to use fast-track lanes at toll stations.

Police said the fakes would be detected by machines at the checkpoints but might pass a visual inspection.
