Chapter 146: Li Dazhuang’s Ending (Part one)
Xu Cheng went to the police HQ, and the moment he walked in, some colleagues that he didn’t know at all started saying hello to him . “Good morning, Captain Xu . ”
“Morning, Captain Xu . ”
Xu Cheng was first stunned for a second before he smiled and nodded in response .
Unknowingly, after this West Gate case, his image at the police station was instantly a lot better . After all, he demonstrated an unparalleled level of intelligence, and no one could say that they weren’t convinced of his abilities . After all, if you were not convinced, why didn’t you go and take down West Gate earlier?
Didn’t they see that Team 5 had tracked it for half a year and got nowhere?
Not to mention the 4 Gates, most teams couldn’t even take care of a small case this fast .
Now, everyone knew that there was a tiger in the police force, and that was Xu Cheng . That was the highest level of title the underground world had given to its nemesis at the police force, recognizing his capabilities .
Xu Cheng walked into Team 2’s office, and inside, Li Chao, Wu Gang, and the others were all very busy . All of them were writing up reports or coming in and out, delivering documents . It was a much more pleasant view of the office warming up in comparison to the atmosphere of the office before, where people would be napping and playing with their phones .
“Boss, your breakfast . I got this for you from the breakfast place downstairs . ” Wu Gang saw Xu Cheng coming in so he handed a bag over .
Xu Cheng took it over, and then a secretary of the director knocked on the door and said to Xu Cheng with a smile, “Captain Xu, the director asked you to go to his office when you have time . ”
Xu Cheng nodded and smiled in response . “Okay . ”
Then, he looked at Li Chao and asked, “Is Chang Qing cooperating?”
Li Chao nodded . “He confessed everything he knows and almost answered everything we wanted to know . But before this, something unpleasant happened . ”
Xu Cheng: “What is it?”
Li Chao: “Don’t know why but the special police people insisted on interrogating Chang Qing first . We didn’t let them, and there was a bit of a conflict and the director had to call in the middle of the night before they would finally give up . ”
Xu Cheng sneered, “Li Dazhuang’s their man . With something this big happening, Li Dazhuang for sure had involvement with Chang Qing . They didn’t want to damage the reputation of the special police department and that’s why they wanted to shut Chang Qing’s mouth . But at this point, no exception can be made, even if it’s one of our guys that’s trying to protect their department’s reputation . ”
Li Chao nodded . “Chang Qing indeed confessed the transaction details over the past two years with Li Dazhuang . The reason Li Dazhuang had good relationships with most people in the police department was how generous he was, and all of this was because he had funds secretly supporting him . The evidence we gathered is enough to prove that he’s the mole . ”
Xu Cheng: “Don’t discuss nor spread anything related to the special police officers, no need to make it more embarrassing for them . Give me the documents recording Chang Qing’s confession about Li Dazhuang . Oh right, where’s Li Dazhuang right now?”
Wu Gang: “For the time being, he’s temporarily behind bars for suspicion of involvement in the West Gate case . ”
Xu Cheng nodded and then said to Wu Gang, “After Chang Qing’s charges goes through, try to get him another place that’s safer to lock him up . Over the years, it’s not common for outside forces to plant people behind bars to kill targeted prisoners . I need him to stay alive . ”
Then, Xu Cheng looked at Li Dazhuang’s file, walked out of the office and went straight to see him .
Seeing someone coming to open the door, Li Dazhuang was quite happy . “Am I free to go now?”
Chapter 146: Li Dazhuang’s Ending (Part two)
“No, come with us to the interrogation room . ”
When Li Dazhuang walked into the interrogation room and saw Xu Cheng sitting in front of him, Li Dazhuang immediately became angry . “If you can’t find any evidence then hurry up and release me . I know you have personal grudges against me, you don’t have to use this case to deliberately lock me up . ”
“You think you shouldn’t be locked behind bars?” Xu Cheng snorted, “But I think you deserve it . ”
Then, he pushed the files over and said, “Take a look, this is the content of Chang Qing’s confessions . He’s testifying that you are the mole West Gate planted in the police force . ”
Li Dazhuang browsed through the documents, paused for a moment, and then laughed . “You think you can use the words of a criminal to accuse me? What is this? Pure nonsense, you think the judge will believe you? Xu Cheng, I know you are in full charge of this case, but that doesn’t mean you can just pour ink on me and blame me for something I didn’t do . ”
Xu Cheng took back the files, then he took out a recorder and a bank transaction record as he nonchalantly said, “This recording is your call with Chang Qing via an unknown number . We tracked it and compared the voice line to your usual SIM card and confirmed that the voice that had been in contact with Chang Qing was indeed you, Li Dazhuang . There’s also this foreign bank card that had been opened for you by the underground money house . Everytime you need money, the casino would deliberately lose to you and transfer the funds to this bank card . ”
Li Dazhuang spoke with anger, “This is all you talking to yourself, I don’t know a thing about the bank card you’re talking about . You are saying the casino deliberately lost money to me, do you have any proof?”
Xu Cheng took out a tablet from a bag and then played a few videos . “This is the footage of you going to the casino taken by the surveillance cameras there . In the video, every trip you make to the casino you were able to win at least a couple hundred thousand to a few million . Li Dazhuang, you should know that police officers can’t be involved with gambling, right?”
Li Dazhuang immediately shot up from his seat and shouted, “Impossible! This is impossible! How did you manage to get footage from so long ago? Usually the footages overwrites itself after a week!”
Xu Cheng faintly smiled . “I didn’t say we got it . These were all given to us by Chang Qing in cooperation with the investigation . You probably didn’t guess that he would have this card up his sleeve so that he could one day use it as back up . I also found out he called you that day to ask you to save him . He was just hoping that one day if he falls off his horse, someone on the inside could help him out a bit . But, who knew you would be this unreliable . As a result, he could only hand us the evidence on you to lessen some of his charges . ”
Speaking of this, Xu Cheng summed up the statement to Li Dazhuang, “Two years, from the day you boarded their boat and colluded with them, you have received a total of 20 million yuan in compensation . These were all used on your daily expenditures . Your leak of operation details also led to casualties of officers fighting at the front line or behind enemy lines . Now, your crime is formally established . ”
Li Dazhuang tried to reach for Xu Cheng as he begged, “Don’t… Give me a chance, I really needed the money back then, and after I tasted the temptation it blinded my heart since then . During the past year I already rarely contacted people from the criminal underworld . ”
Xu Cheng faintly smiled . “It’s all too late now . The originals had been handed in and these are just copies . I’m just here to tell you, injustice is doomed to destruction . ”
Li Dazhuang suddenly went berserk and started roaring like mad, both his hands slammed onto the desk as he shouted, “Xu Cheng, I’m going to kill you!”
Xu Cheng wasn’t nervous at all, because Li Dazhuang’s feet had been chained down and he couldn’t jump at him at all . Instead, because of him becoming furious, the guards outside came in and pushed him down onto the table .
Xu Cheng was too lazy to say even one more word to him . He just left the interrogation room and went to the director’s office .
