At approximately 10 a.m. on July 15, 2009, Liu Jun and three officers from the Hanyang Public Security Team went to Ms. Liang's home.

Then they ransacked Ms. Liang's home and confiscated her Falun Gong books, Teacher's picture, a printer, a laptop, a CD-burner, a desktop computer, and one thousand yuan. They arrested Ms. Liang and took her to the Qinduankou Police Station in Shilipu, Hanyang. She was moved to the Dongxihu Number One Detention Center that afternoon.
