Police Capture Man with Gun at Taoyuan Hotel 曾衝撞總統府 男涉帶槍投宿旅館遭逮捕

A man surnamed Chang recently left a gun behind when changing rooms at a hotel in Taoyuan City's Bade District, and the police arrested him. In 2014, this man drove a truck into the Presidential Office, and was sentenced to six years for attempted murder.


The police knock on the door of the hotel room. As it opens, they immediately move to capture the man inside. 

Taoyuan Police Department's Bade Precinct said it received a report from the hotel personnel. A man surnamed Chang had checked into the hotel and then asked to change rooms due to some malfunctioning facilities. He was moved to another room, and personnel began cleaning his original room. They found a gun under a pillow and concluded that Chang had left it behind when he changed rooms. The police sent over eight officers led by the captain of Siwei Police Station to apprehend the suspect.

Wu Hsueh-an, Deputy Captain, Bade Precinct, Taoyuan PD: “We received a report from a business hotel in our jurisdiction that a guest had a firearm. Officers from this precinct immediately went to the scene and seized one modified pistol, a magazine, and seven modified bullets from the suspect surnamed Chang.”

Seven years ago, Chang drove a gravel truck into the Presidential Office. He was sentenced to six years for attempted murder and he and the truck company were also ordered to pay NT$2.23 million in compensation to cover repairs to the Presidential Office. This was the first case involving compensation for driving a vehicle into the Presidential Office. The Taoyuan District Prosecutors Office is investigating Chang for violating the Controlling Guns, Ammunition, and Knives Act, as well as the Criminal Code by threatening the public.

 

 

 

警方在旅館房門外敲門並警戒著,趁房門開啟瞬間立即上前壓制房內男子。八德分局表示,接獲旅館人員報案,稱張姓房客反映房間設備故障,旅館協助換房,隨後房務人員整理原房間時,在床鋪枕頭下發現一把槍枝,判斷是房客換房遺留,警方也不敢大意,由四維派出所所長率員警共8人,趕赴現場處理。

八德分局副分局長吳學安說明,「接獲本轄某商務旅館員工通報,有旅客攜帶槍械,本分局員警立即到場,查獲張姓男子持有改造手槍1把,彈匣1個及改造子彈7發。」

據了解,張姓男子7年前曾因開砂石車衝撞總統府,以殺人未遂罪被判6年,另和車行連帶賠償223萬4460元,是首起駕車衝撞總統府判賠案例。這次涉嫌持槍,被警方依違反槍砲彈藥刀械管制條例,及刑法恐嚇公眾罪移送桃園地檢署偵辦。
