Surveillance videos help police to make five arrests and recover the stolen goods Police yesterday recovered digital cameras worth $10 million - believed to have been stolen from Hong Kong airport in July - following the arrest of five people. The arrested group includes a truck driver who claimed he was drugged and left unconscious while transporting the goods. All 2,500 cameras were found yesterday in a Kowloon Bay stockroom after a two-month investigation and the arrest of four men and one woman, aged between 23 and 33, on Friday and Saturday. The robbery was reported to the police by a logistics company driver, who was taking the cameras from a Hong Kong International Airport storage container to the Kwai Tung Container Terminal at about 3am last Wednesday, police said. 'The driver said he was hijacked by two men who carried an object like a gun. He claimed the men had forced him to take some drugs and he was later unconscious,' said Senior Inspector Kwok King-leung. Mr Kwok said the driver claimed his legs and hands were tied when he regained consciousness and found himself in Sheung Shui hours later. But he said police found the driver's evidence suspicious and started investigations. Police found that the suspects had moved the cameras around, at one point using temporary stock rooms and industrial buildings in Kowloon East as well as the New Territories. Closed-circuit television footage from the buildings was instrumental in the arrests, said Senior Superintendent Patrick Chan Kwok-keung. Mr Chan said police believed that some members of the gang were still on the run. He said those arrested worked or had worked in logistics. Police appealed to witnesses to the crime or anyone who has been approached by people selling the items to call 3661 1232. The case was one of 15 robberies and theft cases in the logistics sector reported to New Territories South police this year - a sharp rise from the six between last year and 2003. Mr Chan said police had met the sector's representatives to discuss prevention. But Mr Chan, who did not respond to why there was such an increase in the crimes, said 15 cases was still small. Responding to the surge in crimes, Stephen Cheng Wui-yau of the Hong Kong Logistics Association said logistics companies should carefully screen their truck drivers. Mr Cheng said companies should work out ways to track the locations of their vehicles. Chiu Chi-keung, chairman of the Container Transportation Employees General Union, suggested that clients tell the drivers about the value of the goods at the last minute.
