FBI Arrests Reputed L.A. Gang Leader
A man identified by the FBI as the Taiwanese “United Bamboo” gang’s second-ranking member in Los Angeles was among 10 arrested after infiltration of the gang by federal agents and members of the New York City Police Department, U.S. Atty. Rudolph Giuliani said in New York. He said Shaing Bao Jing was arrested in Hollywood and was one of nine charged with racketeering. The prosecutor alleged that the organization has been involved in narcotics smuggling as well as in the murder last Oct. 15 of journalist Henry Liu in Daly City, Calif. Opponents of the Taiwan Administration contend that Liu was killed on orders from government figures there. The other arrests were in New York and Houston. Three others named in the criminal complaint are already in custody in Monterey Park, Las Vegas and Taiwan. The alleged triggerman in the Liu killing is a fugitive, authorities said.
