On February 16, 2022, the Wusong Police Station of the Baoshan Branch of the Shanghai Public Security Bureau received an alarm from a citizen saying that almost 2,000 yuan of money received from the supermarket the day before had disappeared.
When the police arrived at the scene, they found that there were no signs of forced entry on the doors and windows of the supermarket. A representative of the supermarket also told the police that there was never a shortage or theft. When the police checked the public video at the supermarket, they found that no other outsiders had entered or left the store after the store was closed and locked. For some time, the “supermarket robbery case” did not have the slightest chance of being solved.
But one day, attentive cops found a rope that was suspected to be tied around a paper bag for money when they searched the warehouse and suspected that rats could be guilty of stealing money.
The police called the supermarket owner to clean up a row of cabinets in the warehouse together. Indeed, under the cabinets, everyone saw 100 yuan bills scattered along the wall, and a "thieves' den" hidden in the corner (see video above).
When the police retrieved scraps of other money from the rat hole, the "supermarket theft case" was finally solved, and those present were stunned to see the money lost and recovered.
The police warned that the supermarket owner could exchange slightly damaged banknotes at a nearby bank.
