Police have arrested two men involved in the November burglary of the home of Bai Peizhong, chairman of Shanxi Coking Coal, the province's largest state-owned enterprise. Following the arrests police recovered 50 million yuan (US$7.85 million) in stolen property, a much higher amount than the 3 million yuan (US$472,800) Bai reported missing. The victims and the police have stayed relatively mum about the incident, causing speculation over several strange aspects of the case.

Shanxi Coking Coal is China's largest coking enterprise, with sales last year surpassing 100 billion yuan (US$15.7 billion) and production capacity surpassing 100 hundred million tons.

On Nov. 24, former journalist Guo Qinrong posted on his microblog that the house of the chairman was burgled, yet his wife only reported stolen items worth 3 million yuan. Following the arrest of the suspects, it was found that the total amount stolen actually amounted to nearly 50 million yuan, including 6 million yuan (US$944,400) in renminbi banknotes; US$128,840 in Hong Kong dollars; US$270,000 in American banknotes; 3 million euros (US$3.9 million); 7 or 8 kilos of gold bars; diamond rings; expensive watches; necklaces and other luxury goods.

In early December, a police officer in the provincial capital Taiyuan revealed that two of the burglars were security guards in Bai's community, and they often carried packages to Bai's house. The thieves said that since the bags were always heavy, they could not possibly contain the mooncakes or tea that were displayed on the labels.

The guards broke into Bai's house while his wife was home. They forced Bai's wife to open the house's safe, taking all the valuables. They fled the scene in an Audi stolen from the home and did not bother to change the license plate.

The many unusual aspects of the case — the stolen car, the massive amounts of cash in Bai's home, the underreporting of the value of the stolen goods — have led some to wonder if the robbery was actually a case of extortion.

The case has been mocked by China's netizens, saying the two driving forces behind the government's anti-corruption campaign are thieves and mistresses.
