January 15, 2024

Over one hundred bags of sticky rice looted from a truck after it tipped over in Dakrong District, Quang Tri Province, north-central Vietnam on Saturday night were given back on Sunday afternoon. Ho Thanh, chairman of the People’s Committee of Dakrong Commune in the namesake district, said on the same day that residents had brought 106 looted sticky rice bags to the commune’s police station. The truck, driven by Nguyen Van Dong, 29, was carrying hundreds of sticky rice bags at that time. Some locals quickly approached the accident scene to help the driver and conductor escape from the truck cabin, while a mob rushed to take away the bags of sticky rice. Local authorities and police officers on Sunday morning called on the looters to return the sticky rice bags to atone for their ugly behavior.
