Man Threatens to Bomb Taipei 101, Presidential Office 網路留言跨年要炸101與總統府 1男被捕

A man surnamed Chu who left a message on the internet claimed to hurt people during New Year's Eve fireworks at the Taipei 101. Police arrested the suspect and 800 police officers will be deployed to ensure safety.


The police rushed into this New Taipei City residence late at night to arrest a man surnamed Chu and seized his computer to preserve evidence because Chu is suspected of leaving a message under an online video game claiming to copy Cheng Chieh case. He said he would set fire at a high-speed rail station and bomb the crowd at the Taipei 101 during New Year's Eve fireworks, and even target the Presidential Office Building. Net citizens saw the screenshots and reported the case immediately. The police then tracked Chu's online IP to investigate.

Hsueh Hsien-te, Captain, 8th Inves. Corp, Criminal Inves. Div., Taipei City Police Dept.: “We executed a search of Chu's home in New Taipei City's Tucheng District. Chu was arrested and brought back for questioning. He frankly confessed that his message was to express his mood at the time.”

The police found no explosives or knives in Chu's home but he did publicly state he would carry out dangerous acts. After interrogation, the police transferred him to district prosecutors for further investigation on suspicion of intimidating the public.

The New Year's Eve party is about to take place on the 31st. Police are ready to inspect the venue and nearby buildings in advance. Police dogs are also deployed to patrol every corner one by one to prevent contraband and explosives from causing harm. Additionally, aerial drones will be strictly controlled.

Lan Ta-shan, Leader, Mobile Team, Criminal Investigation Squadron, Xinyi Precinct: “We will intercept aerial drones flying around the stage and guide them to the owner's area to land. An officer will follow the drone to the landing area to see who was flying the drone.”

Police will investigate unapproved aerial drones in accordance with the law to prevent people from using them to attack or improperly operate them during the concert. An expected 800 officers will be deployed at various control areas and intersections to maintain safety. 

 

 

 

 

警方深夜衝進新北市這戶民宅逮人,並扣押電腦以保留證據,因為一名朱姓男子疑似在網路上遊戲影片下留言,聲稱要學鄭捷去高鐵放火殺人,跨年炸101的民眾,更鎖定總統府,網友看到立即截圖報案,警方則循線IP追查。

台北市刑大偵八隊隊長薛先得表示:「新北市土城區朱姓男子住屋處執行搜索,查獲朱姓男子,並帶回偵辦。朱嫌坦承不諱,目前表示是他心情的一個抒發。」

警方在朱姓男子家中沒有搜到爆裂物或刀械,不過,這樣公開放話要做出危險行為的言論,警方訊後,將他依涉犯恐嚇公眾罪嫌,移送地檢署偵辦。

跨年晚會31日就要舉辦,警方也嚴陣以待,提前針對會場和附近建築展開清查,也出動警犬一一巡查每個角落,以防有違禁品、爆裂物,造成危害,另外,對空拍機同樣嚴格管制。

信義分局偵查隊機動小隊長藍大山提到:「飛在舞台周邊上空的空拍機,我們做攔截,然後把它引導到操縱者的那邊降落,我們會有人尾隨這個降落的空拍機,去看到底是誰在把空拍機在上面。」

為防範心人利用空拍機攻擊,或是不當操作空拍機墜落造成安全疑慮,警方都依法查處沒有核准的空拍機,預計當晚也將出動800警力,在各管制區、路口戒備,以維護會場安全。
