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.
