24 bus stop shelters in Nanjing stolen overnight

TWENTY-FOUR bus stop shelters worth 1.4 million yuan were stolen on July 24 in Nanjing, capital of Jiangsu Province, Modern Express reported today.

The shelters had been built only nine days before they disappeared.

The company that built the shelters said it was likely professional welders stole them using special tools since the cuts were clean and sharp, according to the report. The company added several people and heavy trucks would have been needed since each shelter weighs more than 200 kilograms.

Police said they are investigating the case, according to the report.

Nanjing had planned to build 45 bus stop shelters as part of the Jiangbei Road project. Of the 25 that had been built, only one remains, the report said.
