Recently, police in Guangzhou, China arrested a man for stealing chips from base stations. Local media told the story in detail.
In the early morning of July 7, the telecommunications company’s alarm system confirmed that the base stations in the Nanshi area had been damaged. This led to the fact that communications in the area were paralyzed. After an investigation by a telecommunications company, eight modules from base stations worth more than $45,000 were found missing.
During the investigation, the police found that the suspect was very familiar with the equipment and its location. On July 8, Wu Moumu was arrested. During interrogation, he confirmed that he got about $900 from the sale of the equipment, which he used for gambling.
He also confirmed that he used his knowledge of base stations obtained at a previous job. The measure of restraint for him has not yet been chosen by the court.
