acky Cheung’s stop in the Zhejiang city of Jinhua on Saturday night became yet another hit concert for fans, as well as for the police who managed to nab two more fugitives. This makes five outlaws who have been caught at one of the Hong Kong pop star’s shows this year, resulting in the “God of Songs” being given a new nickname, the “Fugitive Trapper.”
Police arrested a 47-year-old man, identified as Ma, for trying to resell overpriced tickets outside of the concert venue. Turns out, the long-time ticket scalper is also a wanted thief in Shanghai. “I am a fan of Jacky Cheung. If I couldn’t sell the tickets, I would enjoy the concert myself,” Ma told Jinhua police, according to the Global Times.
Meanwhile, police announced on Weibo that they had also arrested another fugitive prior to the concert, a man surnamed Zheng who was wanted for forging official documents. It’s not clear how police managed to finger Zheng. Previously, the outlaws have been caught via face recognition cams.
The first incident came back in early April on Jacky’s stop in the Jiangxi capital of Nanchang. A man who was wanted for economic crimes, identified as Ao, attended the concert, along with tens of thousands of other fans. Ao believed he would be concealed by the crowds, however, facial recognition cameras spotted him as he entered the venue, leading to his arrest.
At first, it was a humorous kind of story, with Ao’s love for Jacky Cheung’s music leading to his capture, however, following a second arrest in Ganzhou and a third one in Jiaxing occurring in the space of less than two months, netizens have now started to suspect that Jacky is really working as an undercover cop.
The next two stops of his tour will be in the Hunan cities of Zhuzhou and Chenzhou this weekend, where police are eagerly awaiting the pop star’s arrival.
