A man has been arrested for breaking into gold and cellphone shops in northern Vietnam to take away property worth nearly VND1 billion (US$43,176) last month. 

Police in Van Giang District, northern Hung Yen Province had taken legal proceedings against Tran Tien Manh, a 30-year-old from northern Phu Tho Province, on charges of thievery, local officers said on Friday.
