(ECNS) -- Chinese police have repatriated an American fugitive to the U.S. at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the fourth such fugitive this year.

The fugitive was wanted by the U.S. police for suspected theft of vehicles. He entered China via Shanghai in 2009 and worked at an English training institution.

Receiving a U.S. repatriation call in August, Chinese police launched an investigation and detained the suspect on Sept. 15.

Representatives of Shanghai Police and the U.S. consulate general in Shanghai witnessed the hand-over procedure.

The repatriation was the latest result of Sino-U.S. cooperation in chasing fugitives.

During U.S. President Donald Trump's state visit to the country this month, China and the U.S. reached consensus on cooperation in law enforcement and cybersecurity, reiterating that the two sides would promote "the adoption of simplified means to repatriate suspects" to prevent "safe havens" for fugitives from both countries.

U.S. police also repatriated two fugitives to China this year.
