Youth Arrested After Passenger Spots Magazine Pouch on Him 少年搭北捷文湖線 腰間露彈匣袋引恐慌

An 18-year-old man has been under investigation after he was spotted carrying a magazine while riding on the MRT. He will face legal consequences although it was later found out to be a toy gun.


An MRT passenger reported this youth to a station security guard after spotting a magazine pouch on him.

Sung Chun-liang, Chief, Rapid Transit Division, Police Dept., Taipei City: “We found a Glock air pistol on him. He didn't have a legitimate reason for having it on him. He has been charged. ”

After reviewing security camera footage, MRT police located Lee and brought him in for questioning. Lee claimed he had the gun on him because he was headed to a shooting range. Police believe he was displaying the magazine pouch for attention and have charged him with violating the Social Order Maintenance Act. What should MRT passengers do in this situation?

Ms. Chen, Citizen: “I'd flee because I'd be really scared.”

Ms. Cheng, Citizen: “I'd get off at the next stop and wait for the next train.”

In April, a chef was fined NT$1,000 for displaying a cleaver on the Bannan Line. Police say those that need to bring a knife or toy gun with them onto the train for special reasons should inform the authorities first and package their weapon appropriately.

 

 

 

身穿白色上衣,盯著手中物品,不斷調整,走出車廂後,搭上手扶梯,動作沒停過,這一幕幕,有旅客看到嚇了一跳,急著向站務員通報,因為他的腰間露出彈匣袋,只怕身上還藏有槍械。

北市警局捷運警察隊刑事組組長宋俊良表示:「查扣一把當天攜帶之仿克拉克空氣動力手槍,無正當理由攜帶類似真槍之玩具槍,而有危害安全之虞,移送法辦。」

事發在上個月,北捷文湖線捷運警察獲報,調閱監視影像,當天把人帶回偵訊。李姓少年身上,被搜出一把手槍,他辯稱要去射擊場打靶才會攜帶,警方調查後,認定是玩具槍,不具殺傷力,但刻意露出彈匣耍帥,引發騷動,仍被依《社會秩序維護法》送辦。不過,民眾搭乘大眾公共運輸,看到類似情形,又會怎麼做?

陳小姐說:「想逃吧,因為感覺就是很可怕。」

鄭小姐說:「就下一站下車,搭下一班。」

早在今年4月,有廚師搭乘板南線,因為亮出菜刀遭法院開罰1000元,儘管這回虛驚一場,但警方提醒,有特殊需求,攜帶刀具及玩具槍等,除了要事先告知,也要妥適包裝,才不會替自己,引來不必要的麻煩。
