An attendant of an electronics store in Ho Chi Minh City was caught red handed as he attempted to steal US$123,500 (VND2.75 billion) from the shop he worked for.

Nguyen Van Thanh, 22, worked for a Dien May Xanh outlet in Tan Phu District, and knew exactly where his employer keeps the money.

At midnight on Monday, Thanh snuck into the store and took over VND2.75 billion (US$123,500) from the safe, according to a police report.

However, he was caught in the act by store security guards, and is now being detained by police in charge of “stealing assets,” Tan Phu police said on Tuesday.

Dien May Xanh is the electronics chain owned by Vietnam's top mobile phone retailer Mobile World, which also runs the The Gioi Di Dong chain.
