A man has been captured by police in the southern Vietnamese province of Dong Nai after stealing over US$92,000 more than six years ago.
Officers from the provincial Department of Police confirmed on Monday that they had apprehended Tran Van Duong, 36, a resident of the northern province of Ha Nam, for theft.
According to the case file, Duong and three other suspects, Nguyen Xuan Lam, Tran Hong Quan, and Vu Quang Son, were broke and conspired to commit the crime together.
In January 2011, the gang broke into the headquarters of Co Tong Company, a textile and garment manufacturing firm in Binh Chuan Ward, Thuan An Town, Binh Duong, where Quan had previously worked as a security guard.
The suspects used hammers and crowbars to open the safe kept inside the facility and stole about VND2.1 billion ($92,225) in cash before dividing it between each member.
Lam, Son, and Quan were eventually arrested by officers in Binh Duong Province while Duong remained on the run for the next six years.
In similar news, earlier this month Binh Duong police arrested Le Nhu Thom, 37, a suspect in a murder case that is now 15 years old. He was also accused of attempted assault and disturbing public order.
