Drug bust in Shanghai

Photos and report (in English) of drug bust of a low-level, woman street dealer in Shanghai. First published in Chinese, and evidently originated from within Shanghai CID. A fascinating and surprising glimpse of policing in China. OK, not China, but one district in the biggest city in China.
Surprising glimpse? What do I know? I was surprised on my first visit to China to see that Chinese police did not habitually carry guns. Just like Britain. But that was a long time ago and things may have changed. Onward to the drug bust and outcome... with hosting and translation into English by EastSouthWestNorth. Many thanks!
