Police in Dong Nai Province, southern Vietnam have detained a local suspect who used a gun to rob a bank transaction office and got away with some US$25,500 three days ago, a police official has said.

Police officers nabbed Le Huy Dung, a 34-year-old suspect in the robbery that happened at a Vietcombank transaction office in Bien Hoa City, Dong Nai Province on September 8, Major General Nguyen Sy Quang, director of the provincial police, reported on Sunday morning.

Dung’s arrest was made very early on the same morning, and police searched his house soon later, seizing a handgun, a motorbike, and the cash he had stolen from the transaction office.

At 2:30 pm on Thursday, Dung, dressed in black and wearing a face mask and a helmet, was entering the Tam Phuoc Transaction Office in the namesake ward of Bien Hoa City.

At that time, there were about 20 people in the office, including bank employees and clients.

After sitting there for a while, Dung approached the cash counter, pulled out a gun, fired a shot into the air, and ordered the staff to give him money.

Hearing the shot, a security guard rushed into the office but Dung pointed the gun to him, ordering him to step back.

After putting many bundles of cash into a black bag, Dung ran out of the office and continued running across National Highway 51 to get to a place where he had parked his motorbike and escaped on the vehicle.

The whole robbery took place for less than five minutes and was entirely recorded by the office’s security camera system.

The office later reported it had lost about VND600 million ($25,510) to the robber.

After being reported, provincial police hunted for the suspect and eventually detained him at 0:15 on Sunday when he was hiding in An Phuoc Commune of the province’s Long Thanh District, around 20 kilometers from the scene, according to Tien Phong (Vanguard) newspaper.
