Runaway suspect of the Baoding residential building blast gave himself up to the police of Fuyang City, central China’s Anhui Province, on Monday morning.

The suspect surnamed Ge, born in 1974 and from Tangshan City of north Hebei Province, had reportedly home-made detonators since 2009.

Due to the shrinking selling line, Ge, as well as the other two accomplices, had to hide the unsold explosives at the vacant dwelling of his own, which is in a residential building in Baoding City, Hebei Province.

The Saturday deadly blast killed three, injured 34, with five still missing.
