Police in south China's Guangdong Province handed over three suspects in connection with the robbery of a jewelry store to Hong Kong police Saturday afternoon.
The three suspects, from Hong Kong, allegedly participated in the robbery of a jewelry and watch store in Tsim Sha Tsui district of Hong Kong on July 1. Thirty-three luxury watches and six bracelets worth a total of 23 million Hong Kong dollars (2.9 million U.S. dollars) were stolen.
They later fled across the border before being captured by the police in the city of Shenzhen, together with two other suspects from the Chinese mainland. Police seized 12 watches and 1.74 million Hong Kong dollars in cash.
Hong Kong police have further captured eight suspects involved.
Police on the mainland have transfered eight Hong Kong suspects this year, including four in connection with an intentional injury case that resulted in a death, as well as a drug suspect.
Polices from Guangdong and Hong Kong said the successful case was the result of close cooperation and joint efforts on both sides, which they will continue in the future.
