Police in Taichung on Tuesday detained a retired military officer on suspicion of selling modified guns over the Internet. The police learned about the retired official, surnamed Yen, after arresting two men earlier this year for illegally possessing firearms. Taking advantage of the knowledge he acquired during his years in the military, Yen began selling modified firearms online, police said. They said that Yen modified the guns in the attic of his father's house in Kaohsiung City. After being arrested, Yen confessed that he had already sold more than 10 modified guns, police said. Investigators are now working to track down the firearms.
