A BURGLARY gang hired a transport company to work 12 hours a day for 10 days to remove $74 million worth of clothing from a godown while its agent was in China. Detective Senior Inspector Michael Lo Man-hung from the Tuen Mun District Crime Squad II said: ''When the agent came back and went to the godown in Hung Cheung Road, Tuen Mun, he found the boxes of clothes missing.'' ''He made a report to the Commercial Crime Bureau [CCB] because he thought it was a deception case. But the CCB handed over the case to us . . . because it looked to be a burglary.'' Police stopped one of the gang when he arrived at the godown and arrested another two men. The men claimed they were merchants. Detectives raided a godown in Ting Kok Road, Tai Po, and recovered the clothes in 25,000 packing cases. Assistant District Commander (Crime) Detective Superintendent Raymond Pierce said it was the most expensive burglary case in Tuen Mun. The boxes contained a variety of clothes for adults and children. ''We think the transportation company is innocent because they did not know they were moving stolen goods.'' Police investigations revealed an overseas company had brought the goods from China and Southeast Asia last October. A local agent was appointed to look after the shipment.
