The Judiciary Police (PJ) arrested a teenager from the mainland on Wednesday for operating seven fake base stations in two flats near the Barrier Gate Plaza, PJ spokeswoman Lei Hon Nei said during a special press conference yesterday.

Lei identified the suspect as a 16-year-old male surnamed Li, who told the police that he was a chef.

A fake base station is telecom equipment which sends out a signal, disconnecting mobile phone users in an area from their legitimate base stations and who then receive messages from the bogus one instead.
