Chapter 1226: Investigate Their Whereabouts
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
Looking at Zhao Ying gorging on her food, Wang Xiaoyan felt a sense of guilt deep down in her heart. It seemed that Zhao Ying had not eaten well all this while! She only threw away the knot in her heart today.
“Sister Ying, where do you live now?” Wang Xiaoyan looked at Zhao Ying, who finished her food, and handed a napkin to Zhao Ying as she asked.
“I…” Thinking of her residence, Zhao Ying felt a little embarrassed, but she did not intend to lie to Wang Xiaoyan. “I live very close to you… just around the Huashang District…”
” Hey !” Wang Xiaoyan was stunned. She didn’t expect Zhao Ying to live so near her. Then, whenever Yang Ming and I appeared together in the community, Zhao Ying must have seen us several times, right?
“Sister Ying… You live in the community too? When did you buy a house? Or did you rent it?” asked Wang Xiaoyan quickly.
“Yes… Yang Ming bought it for me…” Zhao Ying whispered with a blush.
“Yang Ming?” Wang Xiaoyan had a slight surprise, but she smiled and said, “Sister Ying, it turns out that Yang Ming is hiding a mistress in a love nest! Haha !”
“What hiding a mistress?! Don’t talk nonsense…” Zhao Ying’s face blushed even more. “In the beginning, I called Yang Ming to be my fake boyfriend to see my mother… As a result, my mother wanted this house… ”
“Don’t explain. Any explanation is just a cover-up…” Wang Xiaoyan smiled even more happily. “Sister Ying, Yang Ming bought you a house, and you accepted it. How is there a barrier between you both?”
” Ai .” Zhao Ying sighed slightly. “Yanyan, you don’t know… In the beginning, Yang Ming and I were teacher and student. I rejected him back then, so now… In short, that is… ”
Zhao Ying also said that she did not understand what the barrier was between herself and Yang Ming. Was it her own weakness, or was she afraid of Chen Mengyan accusing her of being a fox, or was she afraid that Yang Ming would reject her? Or something else?
Wang Xiaoyan saw Zhao Ying’s appearance. Although she felt sympathy in her heart, she also knew that onlookers could not help in a relationship issue. The more the onlookers helped, the messier the situation would be! If Zhao Ying wanted to get her own happiness, she could only rely on herself to strive for it. No one could help her.
“Okay, Sister Ying, I got it. Since you find it hard to open up, I won’t ask.” Wang Xiaoyan said, “In the future, let’s make it a promise to go to school together every morning. Or, at night, you can live at my house too.”
” En ?” Zhao Ying was stunned and looked at Wang Xiaoyan, baffed. “Yanyan, don’t you live with Yang Ming and go to school together every day?”
“No way!” Wang Xiaoyan shook her head with a bitter smile. “Yang Ming is so busy. How can he accompany me every day? Nevertheless, Yang Ming and I built our relationship completely on work. I can’t ask too much from Yang Ming. I feel very good now.”
Listening to Wang Xiaoyan, Zhao Ying suddenly became happy, “We can live together again. Of course, it is great. Otherwise, I really have nothing to do every night!”
“You will stay at my house tonight then!” Wang Xiaoyan gave an invitation to Zhao Ying.
“Okay.” Zhao Ying nodded cheerfully. Sun Jie returned to her home in Donghai recently, and Xiao Qing was very busy, so Zhao Ying really had no activities at night. It was a good choice to stay with Wang Xiaoyan.
After the two decided, they looked at the time, and it was already time for their lectures. So, they left the cafeteria together and made a promise to contact each other on the phone for tonight before they went to their respective teaching buildings.
When Yang Ming rushed to the Ming Yang Entertainment headquarters, Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan were sitting in the CEO’s office, directing the security of the Ming Yang Security Company systematically to search for traces of Qu Daming and Liu Chan. However, both of their expressions were very gloomy.
When Yang Ming came, Hou Zhenhan and Bao Sanli stood up at the same time, and shouted somewhat bitterly, “Brother Yang.”
“How is it? Is there any news?” Yang Ming just asked casually. From the faces of Hou Zhenhan and Bao Sanli, he already knew the answer. If they found the person, their faces would not be so ugly.
“Not yet…” Hou Zhenhan shook his head. “It took a while for us to find out when the two people disappeared, and it was enough time for them to escape and hide.”
“Is there anyone in their homes?” Yang Ming nodded and did not blame Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan.
“No… they didn’t go back home.” Bao Sanli said, “It looks like they had already planned it very early on. There was nobody in their homes. They should have already transferred their family.”
“I see.” Yang Ming hesitated and said, “Let’s call the police first.”
“Police? Why do we call the police?” Bao Sanli was surprised with his face showing a baffled expression.
From Bao Sanli’s expression, Yang Ming could naturally guess his thoughts. Bao Sanli was a gangster who solves things through violence. He never thought about using the police as a solution.
Thinking of this, Yang Ming explained, “Baozi, now we are a legitimate company. The company operates according to the law and pays taxes according to the law. Having such a thing happening to us, naturally, we have to find the police for a solution. They solve this kind of thing in a way that is more sophisticated than us. Isn’t it better than our city-wide search?”
Bao Sanli heard Yang Ming’s words and finally came around to the idea! Indeed, now the company was legally operating and paying taxes, and the case of such a vice president embezzling funds naturally required a police report.
Thinking of this, Bao Sanli quickly nodded. “Yes, we should call the police immediately. If the police issued a wanted order, it is more effective than us looking for someone in the city!”
“Brother Yang, do I report to the police, or do you…?” Hou Zhenhan glanced at Yang Ming and asked.
“It should be you.” Yang Ming said to Hou Zhenhan, “After all, the company’s legal person is you. Moreover, you have your own social status in Song Jiang.”
Hou Zhenhan nodded quickly and said, “I will call now.”
Hou Zhenhan did not call the police, but he directly dialed Chen Fei’s phone, who was the police chief and the captain of the criminal police.
“Chief Chen, hello. This is Hou Zhenhan.” Hou Zhenhan smiled and spoke on the phone.
“President Hou, hello.” When Chen Fei heard that it was Hou Zhenhan, he did not dare to be negligent. Hou Zhenhan had become a major taxpayer of Song Jiang. Many companies belonged to Hou Zhenhan, especially the Ming Yang Security Company which was also nominally regulated and directed by the municipal bureau. Therefore, Chen Fei’s personal relationship with Hou Zhenhan was also great.
“Bureau Chief Chen, I want to make a police report! Two vice presidents of Ming Yang Entertainment Company had fled, guilty after embezzling money from the company’s accounts…” said Hou Zhenhan. Then, he described what happened previously to Chen Fei.
Chen Fei listened to Hou Zhenhan’s narrative and knew the seriousness of the matter. This was a very vicious economic crime. Chen Fei said quickly, “I will immediately bring over the police officers in charge of economic crime. President Hou, you can just wait in the company!”
Hou Zhenhan hung up after a quick thank you.
“Brother Yang, I have already reported this to the police. Bureau Chief Chen of the city bureau said that he will bring people with him over immediately.” Hou Zhenhan reported to Yang Ming.
“Uncle Chen is coming…” Yang Ming was a bit troubled. Chen Fei didn’t know what Yang Ming was doing and didn’t know about his relationship with Hou Zhenhan and Bao Sanli. Yang Ming didn’t know what Chen Fei’s expression would be when he saw Yang Ming later.
However, with such a huge incident in the company, Yang Ming really couldn’t omit his presence here!
Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan naturally met Chen Mengyan, and they even helped Chen Mengyan to book a car two days ago. They also knew that Chen Fei was the father of Chen Mengyan, so they could understand Yang Ming’s expression at the moment.
“Brother Yang, how about you go back first? Baozi and I will follow up with the matters here?” asked Hou Zhenhan.
“Forget it. I will stay.” Yang Ming said, “These things need to be opened up sooner or later; it is the time now.”
Recently, Yang Ming also got over it after a series of assassinations. He had not disclosed his identity, and yet it had already attracted so much trouble. Therefore, Yang Ming was not afraid to reveal his identity.
Probably, after he disclosed his identity publicly, the troubles could lessen!
Thinking of this, Yang Ming made a decision to wait for Chen Fei there.
Chen Fei’s efficiency was still very fast. After about a dozen minutes or so, Chen Fei rushed to the Ming Yang Entertainment headquarters with a few police officers. Under Guo Jianchao’s guidance, he came to the CEO’s office.
“Bureau Chief Chen!” Hou Zhenhan quickly went forward to shake hands with Chen Fei. After the handshake, it was Bao Sanli.
Chen Fei knew very well about Bao Sanli’s past and that this kid was a gangster boss. However, Chen Fei was still a bit baffled when Bao Sanli suddenly got on the right track and set up a security company.
However, Chen Fei was very pleased that Bao Sanli could change from an illegal business to a legitimate business. Afterward, Chen Fei did not have any bias but treated him as a successful businessman.
After shaking hands with the two, Chen Fei suddenly found Yang Ming standing in the office, and he was immediately baffled. “Yang Ming? Why are you here?”
“Uncle Chen!” Yang Ming smiled and came forward. “Uncle Chen, in fact, I also have a share in this company. I initially started it with Hou Zhenhan and Bao Sanli. Because I am still a student, I didn’t have time to manage it. Hence, I don’t participate in the detailed operations. Now, something big happened to the company; I naturally have to be here.”
” Oh ?” Chen Fei looked Yang Ming in doubt. “How come you have so much money?”
“It was given to me by my godfather.” Yang Ming pushed the funding matter to Liu Weishan. Anyway, the fact that he participated in the Hong Kong auction was also well documented. Yang Ming was not afraid of Chen Fei looking into it deeper.
“I see!” Chen Fei nodded. “But do your parents know what are you doing?”
“Let me tell you later about this matter, Uncle Chen.” Yang Ming waved his hand. “Now, it is imperative to catch the two vice presidents!”
“Right, I almost forgot about the main business.” Chen Fei said quickly, “Take us to the offices of the two vice presidents.”
Hou Zhenhan nodded and brought Chen Fei and the policemen to Liu Chan’s and Qu Daming’s offices.
Chen Fei was great at criminal investigation. He listened carefully to Hou Zhenhan and Bao Sanli who introduced the situation. After hearing that the two had absconded for a long time, Chen Fei asked, “What are the license numbers and models of the cars they drive?”
“Liu Chan is driving an Audi A6L; the license plate number is AEG777. Qu Daming is driving a Mercedes-Benz SL600, and the license plate number is GGG888,” said Bao Sanli.
“When did they leave the company parking lot?” asked Chen Fei.
“According to the video in the parking lot, they left at 9:48 a.m.” Hou Zhenhan had already checked the surveillance video before, so he had a general understanding of the data.
Chen Fei nodded. He took out his phone, dialed a number and said, “Is this Traffic Police Department Command Center? This is Chen Fei. Hello, Director Sun. Help me check at 9:48 a.m. a surveillance video near Simon Road at the Ming Yang Entertainment Company. We’re tracking an Audi A6L with the license plate number, AEG777, and a Mercedes-Benz SL600, with a license plate number, GGG888. Okay. Call me immediately after you find out where they’re headed.”
After listening to Chen Fei’s phone call, Bao Sanli’s and Hou Zhenhan’s faces lit up with hope. How did they not think of this simple method before? Just track the surveillance video of each intersection at that time, and they could easily find the whereabouts of these two cars!
In fact, Chen Fei’s origin was a detective. He was familiar with these detective methods. The most urgent matter now was to investigate the whereabouts of the two cars.
Not long after, Chen Fei’s phone rang. Chen Fei picked up the phone, listened carefully for a while, then nodded and said, “Okay, I got it.”
“How is it?” Bao Sanli asked quickly.
“There is news. These two cars did not move in one direction after leaving, but rather one of them went south while the other went north. But eventually, they met at the entrance of Song Jiang Garden. Then, they got in a taxi with a car plate number, A55104, together and left. Their cars were left in the parking lot at the Song Jiang Garden.” Chen Fei said, “I have already contacted the taxi driver; I believe that there will be a result soon.”
Sure enough, they got some news again very soon. The traffic police on the other side called and said that the taxi driver had sent two people to the Song Jiang Bus Terminal. The appearance of these two people was the same as that described by Chen Fei.
“Song Jiang Bus Terminal? It seems that they want to escape.” Hou Zhenhan asked subconsciously.
“There is this possibility.” Chen Fei nodded. “They chose to leave by bus; the inspection for this kind of transportation is the loosest. It seems that they planned this ahead. However, I have sent people to the bus station to investigate this matter.”
Fortunately, surveillance video was also installed in the waiting hall of the Song Jiang Bus Terminal. At this moment, Song Jiang had installed surveillance video cameras in many public places. A bus station, which was a particularly crowded place, was no exception.
Although it was troublesome to check, they finally found Liu Chan and Qu Daming on the surveillance video. It was confirmed that the two had purchased a ticket to Donghai and had already left Song Jiang on the previous bus.
The distance between Song Jiang and Donghai was relatively close. Obviously, Liu Chan and Qu Daming must have reached Donghai.
Liu Chan and Qu Daming changed buses midway, indicating that the two still had a certain anti-reconnaissance awareness, but after all, they were not professionals. Even if they changed their bus, they were still tracked in the end.
“Donghai?” When Yang Ming heard the whereabouts of Liu Chan and Qu Daming, he was slightly surprised. He thought of Sun Jie subconsciously because Yang Ming only knew Sun Jie in Donghai.
“Yes, after confirmation, the two of them have already fled to Donghai.” Hou Zhenhan reported to Yang Ming. Chen Fei and his police officers had already gone back after the investigation. Apparently, they were going to shift their manpower to Donghai.
Yang Ming’s matter could only be discussed in detail with Chen Fei after the case was over. Chen Fei had no time to bother about this now. Although Chen Fei had some comments about Yang Ming being associated with Bao Sanli, Chen Fei was relieved that Bao Sanli was still in a legitimate business after all.
“Why are they heading to Donghai?” Yang Ming frowned. Intuitively, it didn’t seem to be simple. Logically, if these two people had to escape, they should not go to Donghai. The average people would flee to a rural place. The more remote it was, the less likely they would be found. Why would they flee to a provincial capital? It was a bit unreasonable.
“Who knows?” Bao Sanli shook his head. He didn’t know what Liu Chan and Qu Daming were thinking.
“Let’s wait for the results. I still believe in Uncle Chen’s ability.” Yang Ming was not bothered with the one hundred and thirty million yuan, but he must take this as a warning to alert Bao Sanli and Hou Zhenhan. They should never allow a similar thing to happen in the company.
“Brother Yang… I’m sorry… I…” Bao Sanli said carefully, but he was interrupted by Yang Ming halfway.
“I understand your difficulties at the time; I will forgive you this time.” Yang Ming waved his hand. “But don’t let it happen again.”
“I understand!” Bao Sanli nodded quickly and was relieved. It seemed that Yang Ming was not going to pursue his responsibility.
“I also have responsibility for this. I wasn’t determined to request you to clean up the corrupted staff in the company. It led to this result in the end.” Yang Ming sighed and said, “I told you last night, yet I didn’t expect there will be such an incident this morning. It seems that they have planned it for a long time.”
Bao Sanli looked down, ashamed. However, even if Yang Ming didn’t pursue his responsibility, he still blamed himself deep down in his heart. It was his duty to conduct a check on the company’s accounts. He didn’t need Yang Ming’s reminder. Therefore, Bao Sanli knew that it happened because of him. Hence, he made up his mind to never let this happen again.
Thinking of Sun Jie, Yang Ming suddenly remembered that last night, he gave Sun Jie a call, and her phone appeared to be shut down. Hence, he picked up the phone again and dialed Sun Jie’s number.
However, after he dialed, it was still shut down. Yang Ming frowned. Sun Jie wouldn’t shut down her phone during the day. Even if it was turned off at night because the phone was charging or other reasons, it is almost noon. Why didn’t she turn it on?
