Police in Guangzhou, China have come up with a unique idea of hunting criminals at large -- putting their images on playing cards and distributing them for free across the South China metropolis.
According to the Guangzhou police, printing the photographs of 54 most-wanted criminals on cards and making them public may help bring in information about them.
The police have reportedly started distributing around 50,000 decks of cards to the public. Each card also contains the criminal's name, height, gender, hometown, case category and reward value.
Shang Shaojie, one of the country's most wanted criminals for four robberies and homicides throughout the past two decades claims the Joker spot, with a 300,000 yuan (SGD60,000) reward.
