A Police SWAT team swooped on a property in Miaoli County yesterday and arrested Snake Alley gangster Jiang Liren(姜禮仁). Jiang had been on the run for over one year after failing to show up to serve an 11 year prison sentence.
Jiang had been convicted of offenses that included attempted murder, intimidation with violence, and possession of unlawful weapons.
Jiang was asleep when the SWAT team raided and did not attempt to resist arrest. A pistol and a pump-action, pistol-grip shotgun was found in his hideout, along with 202 rounds of pistol ammunition, 22 shotgun rounds, and 28 rifle rounds.
Police are now investigating what crimes Jiang has committed in order to secure his income over the last year.
