Gun Found in Zuoying Station Locker 高鐵左營站置物櫃藏槍 陳嫌花蓮被逮

A modified gun was found in a locker at the high speed rail's Zuoying Station! The suspected owner of the gun has been arrested in Hualien, while his motive of hiding the gun is still under investigation. 


Standing in front of the locker at the high-speed rail's Zuoying Station, the man who rented locker number 70 put his bag in. No one knew at the time the bag contained a pistol. The incident happened on the evening of October 21. The locker manufacturer staff performed routine cleaning on the 25th and found the items were not retrieved for more than 3 days. They opened the locker according to the regulations to clean out the locker but a corner of the bag was opened and revealed a firearm. The staff quickly reported it to the police.
 

Locker Manufacturer Staff: “It was in the bag. We were going to move the bag but found what looked like a gun inside. But we didn't know if it's a toy or a real gun. So we asked security to directly report it to the police. ”

The high speed rail said that it only leases out the venue and does not manage the lockers. The locker manufacturer responded that the company sent people to clean and inspect them every week. Items that have not been retrieved for more than three days will be removed and stored after being photographed. On the night when the incident was reported to the police, customer service received a call from a man asking whether the contents in the locker were still there.

Chen Yao-tsung, Chief, Criminal Investigation Brigade, Railway Police Bureau: “The pistol was inspected by the Criminal Investigation Bureau and determined to be a lethal modified pistol.”

Citizen: “Maybe guns, drugs, everything is possible, right? Yeah, you don't know what they are hiding. It would be good if someone is watching or patrolling regularly. ”

The police caught the suspect surnamed Chen in Hualien. He confessed that the pistol was bought for self-defense 15 years ago and denied that he intended to sell the gun or threaten travelers. Some passengers are worried that a gun was placed in a locker at the high speed rail's Zuoying Station, where people come and go. They recommend that the police step up patrols and can also compulsorily inspect locker contents. 

 

 

 

站在高鐵左營站的置物櫃前,男子租借70號櫃子後把袋子放進去,當時沒人知道袋裡裝的是一把手槍,事情發生在10月21日晚上,等到25日置物櫃廠商的工作人員進行例行清潔,發現物品超過3天沒人取用,依規定打開清潔,卻發現袋子一角外露,明顯看出是槍械,趕緊通報警方。

置物櫃廠商指:「是放在袋子裡面,那我們本來要把它移置,發現裡面的東西長得就是像槍械,但是我們不知道它是玩具的還是真的,我們就請巡檢人員直接就是報警處理。」

高鐵表示只提供場地租借,不過問後續管理,置物櫃廠商回應,公司每周派人清潔巡視,只要超過三天沒取走的物品就會拍照存證後移除,而在報警當天晚上,客服還接到男子詢問置物櫃裡頭的東西還在不在。

警政署鐵高警偵查隊長陳耀宗說:「經過刑事警察局鑑驗出該把手槍是有殺傷力之改造手槍。」

有民眾表示:「可能槍、毒,什麼都有可能吧,你也不知道他們到底藏了什麼,定期就是有人看著或是有人在巡的話是好的。」

警方在花蓮逮到陳姓嫌犯,他供稱手槍是15年前買來防身,否認有意圖要賣槍或威脅旅客,只是人來人往的高鐵左營站置物櫃被放槍,也讓有些旅客憂心,建議警方加強巡視,也可以強制檢視櫃內物品。
