Illegal operation of fireworks and firecrackers interest chain
More than 1,900 boxes of fireworks and firecrackers were seized.
The amount involved is 4 million yuan.
In mid-January, the police in Zhangjiagang found that someone was selling fireworks in the WeChat circle of friends. This Wechat business named Su Mou sold fireworks at a clearly marked price without obtaining a sales license for fireworks and firecrackers, and his behavior was suspected of illegal business operation.
Online celebrity, explosions, express home, Su Mou in the circle of friends mainly sells a fireworks named "gatling". As early as the eve of the Spring Festival last year, "gatling" fireworks became popular through social media and turned into "online celebrity Fireworks".
It is understood that the name of "gatling" fireworks comes from Gatling machine gun, which is named after its fast firing speed and fierce firepower. This kind of fireworks is extremely powerful and loud, and it blooms a wide range of sparks when it rises into the sky. After the internet became popular, sales were hot, and even the demand was in short supply.
The price of "gatling" fireworks appearing in the circle of friends ranges from 680 to 960 yuan according to different categories. As long as you complete the online payment and provide the harvest address, you will soon receive the "gatling" fireworks wrapped in snakeskin bags.
After investigation, the police found that in Zhangjiagang City, like Su Mou, there was more than one Wechat business who used his circle of friends to sell fireworks, and even a subordinate agent was derived.Their delivery sources all started in a city in other provinces.
Fireworks and firecrackers are treated as ordinary commodities, and they are bought and sold at will through logistics, regardless of the hidden safety hazards behind them! The police found out that several micro-businesses such as Su Mou were subordinate agents, and the leader of the gang was a 29-year-old Henan woman named Shimou. At this time, the illegal fireworks gang with Shimou as the core was in Hubei and Hunan hundreds of kilometers away.
Zhangjiagang police immediately dispatched elite police to carry out investigations. After investigation, since October, 2021, Shimou and his friend Peng have made a joint venture, and Shimou sought the source of goods to purchase fireworks mainly based on "gatling". Subsequently, the two found a number of relatives and friends to rent the warehouse, making this place a distribution center for the purchase and sale of fireworks.
After that, Shimou and Pengmou began to sell fireworks in the circle of friends, and also authorized subordinate agents. "Agents at every level will raise the price of fireworks step by step to earn the difference." According to the police handling the case, the agent only needs feedback after receiving the order, and the delivery is completed by Shimou gang. In this way, the purchase price of fireworks per box is only 200 to 300 yuan, and the price sold by the agent is doubled.
Due to the large shipment volume, Guan, who had done logistics business in Shimou’s gang, was stationed in the warehouse and used the regulatory loopholes of individual express delivery companies to deliver fireworks to many provinces and cities across the country.
On January 21st, Suzhou Public Security Bureau organized police forces to cooperate with Zhangjiagang police, and with the cooperation of police in Wuhan, Hubei Province and Wuxi, Changzhou and other places in our province, carried out centralized network-closing operations in two provinces and places, successfully arrested 13 suspects suspected of illegally operating fireworks and firecrackers, including Shimou and Pengmou, and seized more than 1,900 boxes of illegal fireworks and firecrackers for sale in Shimou’s rented warehouse.
