A man who fled Shanghai after allegedly stealing a 100-kilogram iron safe storing valuables said to be worth 40,000 yuan (,045) from a flat at the end of October has been caught, Shanghai police said yesterday.

The 1.9-meter-tall suspect, surnamed Pan, allegedly entered the apartment on the second floor of a building through an open window in Chengqiao Town, Chongming District.

The burgled family said the safe, placed in a bedroom beside a bed, contained gold, silver and jade accessories, ancient coins and cash. They said the safe had wheels on its underside.

A woman, surnamed Wei, said she was Pan's accomplice after she was arrested in Baoshan District before he was caught.

Wei said she was waiting outside the apartment as Pan used a bed sheet to cover the safe. He carried it on his back and left the apartment.

A camera caught Pan and Wei getting into a car with the safe.
