A list of Yunnan's 100 most-wanted criminals has been posted throughout Kunming as part of a campaign to encourage the fugitives to surrender to law enforcement officials.
The list was part of an "urging all criminals to turn themselves in to the police announcement" 《关于敦促一切刑事犯罪人员投案自首的通告》 released by the Yunnan People's Court, the Yunnan prosecutor's office and the Yunnan Public Security Bureau.
Rewards ranging from 2,000 to 20,000 yuan (US$294-2,940) are being offered for information leading to the capture of the fugitives.
What does it take to become one Yunnan's top fugitives? It apparently does not require being from Yunnan, only committing crimes here. Registered residents of Sichuan and Guizhou are well represented on the list along with a smattering of people from elsewhere in China.
Intentional homicide seems to top out the crimes cited on the list with others crimes including drug dealing, armed robbery, weapons smuggling, fraud, inciting riots and arson.
The most wanted of the handful of women on the list, Li Pingzhi, comes in at number 12 overall with authorities offering a 5,000 yuan reward for information leading to her capture. She is being sought for her involvement in the trafficking of women and children.
Despite her cherubic appearance, another woman, Cao Enrong (pictured right), age 26, of Wenshan in southeast Yunnan, is wanted on homicide charges. She is number 21 on the list.
