Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 651
Chapter 651 – Tricks (Part 3 of 3)
In this era, those that run video lounge were mostly notclean. They did not commit any serious crimes, but most of them will airpornography!
This can consider an offense and can be charged in courts.Chief Li knew that the person in front of him was not a good person.
But since this Qian Jing dares to tell him about his videolounge, then he should have kept all those illegal stuff away. Even if Chief Liconducted a raid now, it would be a waste of time.
“Qian Jing, do you have those type of films in your videolounge?”
“Absolutely not. My video lounge plays VCDs, and all my VCDsare originals.” Qian Jing quickly replied.
“Good. How many times have you go in?” Chief Li suddenlyasked.
“6 times. The last time was more than 1 year ago. I havechanged for the better.”
6 times? Then you are considered a serial offender. Therewas a research on serial offenders turning over a new leaf. The chances of themnot returning to their old ways was less than 1%. The crimes they committedwill be more severe after every release. Chief Li did not continue to questionhim, and Feng Yu suddenly asked.
“How is your video lounge business?”
“It’s quite good. People are coming over every day, and therental business is also doing well.” Although Qian Jing did not know who thisperson was, for him to sit beside Chief Li, he should not be someone ordinary.
“How much are you charging for a disc rental and how muchare you charging to watch a film? How many discs are there in your video loungein total? Are there any disco or nightclubs near to your video lounge? Are theyalso using VCD players? Oh, what brand is your VCD player?”
Feng Yu asked a series of questions, and everyone in theroom was stunned. What was Manager Feng doing? Chief Li was also confused. Whydid Feng Yu interrupt his interrogation with so many weird questions?
It was rare for Feng Yu to meet someone who runs videolounge and he wants to understand the market. Wind and Rain Electronics wasFeng Yu’s baby. He had put in a lot of efforts into this company, and thiscompany was China’s first company to stand before all other electronicscompany. Feng Yu does not want anything to go wrong.
“The rental of the disc is 20 cents a day and watching afilm is also 20 cents. All the video lounges charge the same prices. Our videolounge has more than 1,000 discs. I am not sure about the exact figures. Thereare a few bars nearby that use VCD players too. Their businesses are also quitewell. I am using Wind and Rain VCD player. It is a world-renowned brand.”
Qian Jing was also confused why Feng Yu had asked thesequestions. But he still replied honestly. He thought that if he showed theright attitude, these people might let him and his men off.
It was much cheaper than movie tickets, and there were awide variety of choices. No wonder China’s movies were not able to make moneyin the cinemas. It was not the movies’ quality. It was these video lounges thatwas affecting China’s movie industry.
There were more and more small nightclubs and bars. Thatmeans the VCD sales will get better in the future.
“How many people are there in total?” Feng Yu asked.
Chief Li was confused by Feng Yu’s questions. What werethose earlier questions for and how come he changed the topic back again? Theonly person in the room that knew what was going in Feng Yu’s mind was StoreManager Zhao. He knew that Feng Yu owns Wind and Rain VCD player.
Qian Jing was also not used to Feng Yu’s way of asking. Buthe was still able to react. This was because he had predicted that he will beasked this question.
“There are only 3 of us. Me, Da Zhuang and Yingzi. The 3 ofus are running this video lounge. I really did not know that Yingzi will comeand steal from you all. I’m very sorry. I will make sure that Yingzi acceptsher punishment.”
“Seems like your video lounge business is very good. You caneven afford mobile phones.” Feng Yu smiled.
An owner of a video lounge could afford a mobile phone? Themobile phone prices had dropped a lot, but it still cost 20,000 RMB. It was equivalentto an average person’s two years’ salary!
Chief Li immediately realized it. “If the value of thestolen items is more than 1,000 RMB, the fine will be 5,000 and at least 15days in lockup. Prepare to help her pay the fine.”
Qian Jing was stunned. Why was fine so high? In the past,the fines were only 200 to 300 RMB. He felt even 200 to 300 RMB was very high. Somethieves could not even steal that amount in a week. This was why if any of hisfollowers were caught, they would choose to be lockup instead of paying fines.
Qian Jing looked at his mobile phone. It was not bought byhim. He had stolen it. Although it was hard to change numbers, it was stillpossible. Qian Jing did not bear to spend money to buy a mobile phone.
“What’s wrong? You don’t have 5,000 RMB? Is your mobilephone stolen from others? Oh, do you still have the receipt for your mobilephone? If the stolen item’s value is more than 10,000 RMB, the punishment willbe heavier!” Chief Li knocked on the table.
“This is a second-hand mobile phone. There is no receipt. Ireally do not have 5,000 RMB. Since she had committed an offense, then I willleave it to the police. I shall not disturb you all. I will go back to tend tomy shop.” Qian Jing turned and tried to leave.
“You are leaving? Wait a while. Liu Tian, come in!” Chief Lishouted at the door.
A police officer entered the room and salute to Chief Li.“Sir! Everyone is here.”
“Ok. Release that big size fellow and tail him secretly. Youmust not let their accomplices escape! Also, send someone to accompany Xiao Suand that woman to bring back all the stolen goods. Arrest those that bought thestolen goods too!”
Qian Jing’s eyes widen. What’s the meaning of this? Theywant to arrest all of us?
“Sir, what did I do wrong? Why are you arresting me?”
“You should know what you did. That woman had alreadyconfessed and told us all the crimes you did. You really think that I believeall your bullshit just now? If it weren’t to prevent alarming your accomplices,I would have brought you out through the front door.”
Chief Li was pissed. He was the Police Chief of a district,and he had to leave through the back door.
Now, it all boils down to that Da Zhuang to lead them totheir nest and arrest everyone!
Qian Jing realized that he had been tricked. He was arrested,and after Da Zhuang was released, he would not know what to do. He will surelylook for other members of the syndicate to ask for help.
And this way, the police would be able to arrest every oneof them!
The most confusing part was why Yingzi betrayed him. Yingziwas the only one who knew where he hides his stash. If Qian Jing knew Yingziwould betray him, he would never tell her any secrets.
That’s it. The value of his hidden stash was very high. Hewill surely be in jail for a long time. Any crimes that involve a syndicate,the punishment will be very heavy.
Qian Jian thought that he was here to negotiate with thesupermarket boss, and at most he will not come back to steal from thissupermarket. He thought he was able to bring his men back. Maybe thesupermarket might still give him some money to ask them to leave.
But it turns out to be like this……
2 hours later, Chief Li looked at his pager on his waist.There were only a few words. “Mission accomplished!”
