The Public Security Police (PSP) have detained a man alleged to have broken into 12 cars in Taipa since January 9. Information suggests that PSP officers were patrolling near the Altira resort in Taipa yesterday morning when they spotted the man. He appeared to be acting suspiciously and was peeking into the windows of several vehicles. The officers then decided to follow him and finally intercepted him at Rua de Seng Tou, where he was caught committing the crime. After taking him into custody, the authorities found a 28-cetimeter long knife, a screwdriver and some cash in his possession. The man admitted that he was from the mainland and entered Macau illegally last October, only to then lose money  gambling.
