Brother to replace detained groom
A groom-to-be suspected of theft who was detained the day before the wedding asked his elder brother to replace him at the wedding ceremony in Huainan, Anhui province, anhuinews.com reported on Friday.
The 24-year-old man, surnamed Chen, was once in jail for theft. Chen appears to have picked up the habit again after being released from prison. He and an accomplice, disguised themselves as wealthy men and committed crimes at high-end food, tobacco, liquor or electronic shops with only one female staff member working.
Chen allegedly took part in 12 cases of theft, stealing ten of thousands of yuan within a month.
The police said that date they were going to apprehend Chen coincided with Chen’s wedding day. They said to avoid an embarrassment, the date was changed to the day before the ceremony.
