ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Smuggling turtles down his pants could land an Ontario man up to 10 years in prison.

Kai Xu, 27, pleaded guilty to taping 51 snappers to his body. He was trying to smuggle them into Canada from the United States.

Xu admitted to court that he ordered the turtles online and would travel to the U.S. to ship them to China or return with them to Canada.

 

(…)Xu was found to have 41 live turtles strapped to his legs and 10 hidden between his legs, according to an affidavit from a special agent with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Canadian authorities seized the turtles, which included North American varieties such as eastern box turtles, red-eared sliders and diamondback terrapins — some of which sell for $800 each — and turned them over to American officials.

“Special Agent (James) Fuller noticed irregularly shaped bulges under Xu’s sweatpants on both his legs,” the document states.

It’s illegal to export wildlife from the U.S. without a licence from the government.

Xu faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison although it’s unlikely he’ll face anywhere close to that full sentence.

RICHMOND: Chinese woman robbed by two men, one described as South Asian

No coincidence woman robbed after flat tire: VPD

Police believe her car was tampered with

RICHMOND NEWS 

SEPTEMBER 18, 2015 09:29 AM

Police are hoping CCTV footage will identify two men suspected of robbing a woman who withdrew $5,000 from a Richmond bank.

The woman, who is of Chinese ethnicity, took the cash from the bank, believed to be the TD Canada branch in Lansdowne Centre, on Monday, Sept. 14 at around 11 a.m.

However, at around 11:30 a.m., while en route to meet a friend in Vancouver, she noticed a tire on her car was flat and pulled into a parking lot near 57th Avenue and Oak Street in south Vancouver.

As she got out of the car, two men, one described as being south Asian, ran over and grabbed her purse containing the cash.

According to Const. Brian Montague, of the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), the victim does not believe she was targeted.

Her account of the incident, however, is leading the VPD to strongly suspect that she was singled out at the bank in Richmond and that her tire was tampered with by the men.

“It is possible this was random, but it would be too much of a coincidence that she got a flat tire shortly after withdrawing a large sum of money from the bank and then two men show up at her car within seconds and rob her,” added Montague.

Police are currently looking for video footage of the area around the bank and the mall at Lansdowne Centre.

Montague said police are, as yet, unable to release any more information about the suspects.

“We do get crimes of this nature from time to time; it’s always good to be aware of your surroundings, especially coming from the bank,” advised Montague.

“We suggest you keep your money and important identification items out of your purse and wallet. Losing your identification can cause a major disruption to your life.”

Anyone with information should contact the VPD at 604-717-3321 or Crimestoppers free and anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

Unlicensed Richmond immigration consultant Xun “Sunny” Wang let hundreds into Canada illegally

Unlicensed Richmond immigration consultant let hundreds into Canada illegally: Crown

DAN FUMANO / RICHMOND NEWS

CBSA immigration fraud

Chinese passports were seized by Canadian Border Services Agency after a “significant” fraud scheme was uncovered earlier this year

‘Many, many hundreds” of immigrants obtained Canadian citizenship or permanent residence with the help of an unlicensed immigration consultant in Richmond who made millions altering passports, a court was told Wednesday.

Xun “Sunny” Wang appeared at a sentencing hearing in provincial court in Vancouver after pleading guilty to eight charges in connection with his immigration businesses.

Federal Crown counsel Bruce Harper said “definitely many, many hundreds” and possibly “well over 1,000” of Wang’s clients obtained Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status through Wang’s fraudulent businesses.

“There are certainly a great number of individuals whose status in Canada, whether permanent residence or citizenship, is now in question,” Harper said.

Wang’s businesses served more than 1,000 customers between 2006 and 2013, charging more than $10 million for services, court heard.

Along with six counts under the Criminal Code and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, Wang has pleaded guilty to two counts under the Income Tax Act, including failing to report $2,722,305 of taxable income from 2007 to 2012.

And, despite the millions earned by his companies, court heard, Wang also claimed several thousand dollars of low-income tax benefits between 2008 and 2013, which Harper compared to robbing a bank, and then stealing the charitable donation can on the way out.

“It adds insult to injury,” Harper said.

Crown is seeking a sentence of seven and a half years.

B.C. Mounties have arrested a 44-year-old Chinese national accused of bilking locals into buying fake gold ingots and Buddha figurines.

The victims were befriended by a man claiming to be from the construction industry, who told them he’d unearthed the treasures by chance along with an ancient will.

It’s unclear how many people the alleged fraudster approached, but the RCMP said two women and a man from across the Lower Mainland were tricked into paying for the phony gold.

Mounties said similar crimes have been reported in other parts of the world, including Japan, Singapore and the U.S., but this appears to be the first case in Canada.

“We pulled all the stops. We hated seeing this type of crime occurring in our backyard,” Const. Jon Francis of the Richmond RCMP Economic Crime Unit said in a statement.

The victims tested the ingots before buying them, but the RCMP said the scammer managed to switch in a sample of authentic gold using sleight of hand.

Anyone purchasing high-value gold items is urged to have them individually tested by an independent testing facility, and to obtain legal counsel for their protection.

The accused, Bao Sheng Zhong, is charged with three counts of fraud. The RCMP said Zhong is a Chinese citizen who has been living in Richmond.
