Changzhou police found the suspect just eight hours after four antique family heirlooms were stolen. According to the owner, these four antiques were all from the Qing Dynasty and worth over 4 million yuan. But the results of authentication took everyone by surprise.

On the morning of March 21, Mr. Wu went to work as usual, only to find that his company had been robbed and his four extremely valuable family heirlooms missing. The police of Changzhou, a city in Jiangsu province, started their investigation by looking through CCTV clips. They discovered the suspect in an Internet café eight hours later. The suspect, surnamed Yu, had just been released from prison on March 15. He had been sentenced four times for robbery.

What Mr. Wu did not expect was that his family heirlooms would turn out to be worth so little. It turned out that three of the items were fake, and the one real item, a coin, was worth only about 3,900 yuan.
