FBI Arrest Chinese Spies Operating Illegal Police Station In New York

In a press release on Monday, the Department of Justice announced the arrests of two individuals in Manhattan: Lu Jianwang, 61, and Chen Jinping, 59. They were charged with conspiring to act as CCP spies and operating an illegal police station.

The FBI arrested two New York residents with conspiring to act as agents of China’s government, by operating an illegal police station, and acting as spies.

In a Monday press release, the Department of Justice announced the arrests of Lu Jianwang, 61, and Chen Jinping, 59, in connection with the undeclared police station in Manhattan’s Chinatown neighborhood. They will be prosecuted in the Eastern District of New York, and are expected to appear in federal court in Brooklyn.

The two admitted to the FBI that they deleted their communications with a CCP official after discovering they were under investigation.

“It is simply outrageous that China’s Ministry of Public Security thinks it can get away with establishing a secret, illegal police station on U.S. soil to aid its efforts to export repression and subvert our rule of law,” said Acting Assistant Director Kurt Ronnow of the FBI Counterintelligence Division. “This case serves as a powerful reminder that the People’s Republic of China will stop at nothing to bend people to their will and silence messages they don’t want anyone to hear. The FBI is dedicated to protecting everyone in the United States against efforts to undermine our democratic freedoms, and we’ll hold any state actors – and those who help them – accountable for breaking our laws.”

Before helping to open the police station in early 2022, Lu had a longstanding relationship of trust with PRC law enforcement, including the MPS. Since 2015, and through the operation of the secret police station, Lu was tasked with carrying out various activities, including to assist the PRC government’s repressive activities on U.S. soil.

Statista has reported that, according to the latest publicly available figures, 1.25 million people have ‘Top Secret’ clearance access in the US.
