HCM CITY — Police in Da Nang City on Tuesday captured Vinh Phuc Province native Nguyen Tuan Vu, who was arrested for a total of 13 burglaries in six provinces around the country within a four-week period.
Vu, who escaped from prison last year where he was serving a 19-year sentence on burglary and theft, admitted to police that he had broken into the offices of the city's department of finance, State-owned Cienco 5 construction corporation, customs department and other agencies from November 16 to December 14 last year.
Police said it was difficult to track his whereabouts because Vu moved often between Da Nang, Binh Dinh Province and Ha Noi.
Vu has been wanted nationwide since April of last year after escaping from prison.
Police did not reveal the total amount of stolen money. — VNS
