According to police, Huang has many relatives in Vietnam and speaks fluent Vietnamese. During robberies, he would threaten people in Vietnamese, so they would believe he was a foreigner.

When he was captured at 2 am on Sunday, he had an AK-47 and a Type-54 pistol along with 77 bullets in his possession, police said.

According to police, the other members of Huang's gang, Liu and Lu, were arrested in April in separate raids. Liu was armed with a military pistol and 54 bullets, they said.

Arms smuggling is often reported in the border city of Chongzuo. Police say they confiscated 148 guns, 37,709 bullets and 200 kilograms of explosives in the city in 2011.

Six military guns among the 148 captured came from abroad. The rest were homemade for hunting or keeping animals away from crops, said Liu, the police officer.

Several armed robberies have been reported in China in recent months.

On Jan 4 last year, three police officers were killed in a gunfight with two shooters in Taian, in East China's Shandong province.

A fugitive suspected of killing six people in China's Chongqing municipality and Hunan province in the past eight years shot dead another person after the victim withdrew 200,000 yuan in cash from a bank in Nanjing, East China's Jiangsu province.
