 Tomb robbers who dug out bronze swords and sold them for 2000 yuan were sentenced to 10 and a half years and fined 20000 yuan


More than four years ago that night, completely changed the life track of Li, Zhang and Li.

Li, 44 years old, is from Jingzhou District, Jingzhou City, junior high school culture, unemployed. On November 14, 2015, as soon as it was dark, Li arrived in front of a homestead. This homestead is located in group 4, Yutai village, Jinnan Town, Jingzhou District, Jingzhou City.

Li, who had stepped on it for a long time, concluded that the humble homestead had a lot of heaven and earth. There are a lot of tombs in Jingzhou, but this land is within the protection scope of yutaishan ancient tombs, which is a provincial cultural relic protection unit.

After the three people rendezvous, Lee picked up the shovel and excavated. Li tired and changed to dig. Li Moulong was in charge of watching the wind. One spade, two spades... I dont know how long it has been digging, and the three are overjoyed with the sound of Ding Dong! Then he dug carefully along the touched metal, and a rusty bronze sword appeared in front of the three men.

For fear of being found out, they quickly filled the hole and disappeared in the night with this ancient sword.

I thought Id got the treasure, but in fact, it didnt go well. Looking at the humble bronze sword, the buyer didnt believe it was a real cultural relic.

Finally, Zhang contacted a buyer surnamed Hu. The other side offered 2000 yuan, thinking to start early and finish early, so the three discussed and finally sold the bronze sword to Hu at the price of 2000 yuan, and the money was quickly squandered by the three.

Subsequently, the theft and excavation of homestead gradually exposed. On January 29, 2016, the public security organ searched Lis residence, and found 12 drill rods, 2 sleeves, 2 spade heads, 2 spade handles and 1 hemp rope.

On March 10, 2016, Li was arrested by Jingzhou District Peoples Procuratorate for suspected of stealing ancient tombs.
