Loan shark suspects arrested Police yesterday arrested two core figures of a triad-controlled loan sharking gang alleged to have preyed on drug addicts with annual interest rates of up to 500 per cent a year. Investigators said the gang used Jockey Club betting accounts to collect money from debtors in the operation that involved more than HK$1 million in the past 12 months. Last night, officers from the Kowloon East anti-triad squad were still hunting for about 10 other men in connection with the case.
