Two men, one wanted for allegedly handling stolen goods and the other for people-smuggling and theft, were returned by Shenzhen Public Security Bureau officers yesterday.

The first man, 41, was arrested in September for a minor offence and it was discovered he was wanted by the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau for allegedly handling a stolen tractor in May 1996. The other man, 36, went to Shenzhen after allegedly fleeing a boat carrying illegal immigrants that ran ashore on September 4 on Lantau. He was arrested by Shenzhen police this month and officers later recovered $255,000 believed to be from a theft in Kowloon last year.
