The owner of the explosives that caused the blast last Sunday in East China’s city, Ningbo has been detained, according to the local police.

After careful investigation, the local police identified the suspect, a 33-year-old man from East China’s Anhui Province. He was arrested in central China’s Hunan province at around 9 p.m. on Monday and then detained.

After interrogation, the suspect said that he told his families in Ningbo to dismantle and destroy the explosives to avoid being punished.

The suspect was charged with illegal making, selling and buying explosives this October, according to police in North China’s Liaoning province.

A powerful blast in the coastal city Ningbo on last Sunday morning, in East China's Zhejiang Province, has killed two people and injured at least 30.
