Police report

Change the Black Market of Transactions on Construction Sites

Some time ago, Beijing police received a report that someone had stolen porcelains at a construction site, and the informer had also filmed a trading video.

From the video taken by the whistleblower, the reporter of the Beijing Qingdao newspaper noticed that the burglars were digging a pit with shovels and headlights, and many buyers of on-site transactions were gathered around them.

According to the introduction of the public security department, according to the clues grasped in the early stage, the number of people at the scene is the largest, reaching 40 to 50 people every night around 11 oclock.

During the investigation, the police found that the reported site was nearly 1,000 square meters, surrounded by fences, which were normally constructed during the day and turned into a black market for the trading of ancient porcelain chips at night.

Subsequently, the Beijing police dispatched more than 100 police forces, after many preparations, to carry out operations on the black market of the transaction, while arresting many suspects are still excavating.

Detention of 31 persons

The highest purchase price of ancient porcelain chips is 10,000 yuan.

From the video of the arrest scene, the reporter of Beiqing Daily saw that several large pits had been excavated by the burglars in the construction site. Around the pits, there were many pieces of ancient porcelain which had just been excavated, some of which had been paid off during the Ming and Qing Dynasties.

Through the on-site trial, some suspects said that they came here to excavate and buy ancient porcelain chips out of their hobbies.

At the same time, according to the clues, the police arrested Wang Mou, the owner of an antique shop in Shilihe, which bought ancient porcelain chips. Wang Mou said that his usual purchase price of this kind of ancient porcelain pieces, will be based on the age, color pricing, hundreds of yuan, thousands or even tens of thousands of yuan.

Are the stolen chips cultural relics?

According to the antique market insiders, in recent decades, the collection market has been warming up, of which porcelain collection accounts for more than 30%, and prices are also rising. However, due to time constraints, coupled with improper preservation and other factors, complete ancient porcelain has been very few, many people gradually began to collect relatively low prices of ancient porcelain fragments. In the absence of complete porcelain, some pieces of ancient porcelain can also be used as specimens of various dynasties.

In fact, many people go to dig ancient porcelain chips, some people want to make a fortune on this, the other part may also feel that anyway they have to be cleaned up, as I took it. Liu Weidong, a member of the Beijing Municipal Cultural Relics Appraisal Committee, told Beiqing Daily that cultural relics are not necessarily collections in general. Many of the collections traded are not really from official kilns, and it is difficult to define them.

As for the value of ancient chinaware, Liu Weidong said that the value depends on the market, such as the Ru kiln fragments may be valuable, or at the same time only a few complete chinaware or chinaware fragments, also have sample value. But now many people collect it. Everyone thinks it may be valuable, but how much is it worth? How to collect reasonably and benignly still needs more propaganda from relevant departments. Liu Weidong said.

For the site where there are a lot of ancient porcelain pieces, Liu Weidong told Beiqing Daily that there are several possibilities: first, it used to be a place where fired porcelain was stored, and the remnants were broken in place, leaving behind these ancient porcelain pieces; it may also be that there was a porcelain shop here, or garbage was buried in it; and it may even be a large number of ancient porcelain pieces collected by people in the past.

Zhang Zhenzu, partner of Beijing Hairun Tianrui Law Firm, told Beiqing Daily, In this case, the phenomenon of stolen excavation has existed for many days. If the work place knows that there is such stolen excavation in the site at night, but does not report it, then the work place should bear the corresponding responsibility.
