March 15, 2024

A court in Vietnam has sentenced a Chinese repeat thief to one year and six months in prison for stealing a gold necklace worth over US$1,770 at a jewelry shop in south-central Phu Yen Province last year. On June 4, 2023, the Chinese man rode to Phu Yen with the intent to steal from jewelry stores. While the sales attendant was distracted, Huang pocketed one necklace and returned the rest to the staff. On his way back to the northern region, the man sold the gold necklace to a jewelry shop for VND16 million ($645). Phu Yen police waited for Huang to finish his jail term in Thua Thien Hue before arresting him.
