Chinese police have identified a man wanted in connection with 10 killings living in prison as a convicted robber, Guangdong police announced Thursday.

Cheng Ruilong, 36, was taken to a detention center Wednesday in Foshan City, Guangdong Province, from a jail in Jiangxi Province, after police officers identified him as a inmate named Zhou Quan.

Cheng was wanted for murder on priority warrant issued by the Ministry of Public Security in 2001, according to the public security bureau of Foshan.

Cheng is accused of killing 10 people, including at least three police officers, since 1995 in a series of kidnappings for ransom and armed robberies in Guangdong, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Chongqing Municipality, and Jiangxi Province.

However, Cheng allegedly changed his identity to Zhou Quan and lived in Jiangxi. He was arrested there in January 2005 and jailed for seven years after being convicted of robbery.

Jiangxi police identified him on May 20 after comparing his information with files obtained from the ministry on May 20.

Cheng allegedly confessed to the killings during police questioning in Guangdong.
