Gang takes souvenir photo before casino heist

The members of the gang, all natives from Fujian province, whose ages range from 27 to 15, had a group photo taken before the planned robbery in which they all wore ski masks and held machetes.

Patrol officers thought the group was acting in a suspect manner on May 10 and took them to the police station for investigation. Ski masks, machetes and imitation guns were later found in the trunk of their car. The gang confessed and said the photo was taken as a souvenir for the planned robbery.
