Crossbell Times Insert 9017 - Assault on Trading Company

Raided trading company

Heiyue Trading, Ltd., a company with its office in the Harbor District, was raided suddenly late last night.

Anxiety is spreading among residents in the neighborhood of the attack. Based on the appearance of the damage, it can be inferred that heavy weaponry was used in the raid. A Crossbell police investigation is underway.

◆What Is Heiyue Trading, Ltd.?◆

Heiyue is a trading company headquartered in the Eastern Quarter of the Republic. Ten months ago, a branch was established here in the Harbor District of Crossbell City, and it appears they conduct various commercial transactions under the audit of lawyers.

◆Why Were They Raided?◆

Mr. Lee, the branch manager

The question remains: why was a company such as this raided, let alone with heavy weapons? According to Branch Manager Cao Lee, 'I don't have any idea [about the reason for the raid]. However, because I manage a trading company, we have many rivals. There is the possibility that among them, someone chose to express their unjustified resentment,' he said. 'I am terribly sorry to have caused this neighborhood such great concern and trouble.' He then bowed deeply.
◆Tension Remains◆

Even a day after the incident, a sense of tension hangs in the air. The truth of the incident should be unearthed by the police soon.
