HA NOI (VNS)— Two men have been arrested by the Dong Da District Police for stealing electronic devices from the Centre for Gene-Protein Research at Ha Noi Medical University.

Tran Van Vinh, 26, and Le Dinh Thang, 18, were working as technicians at the university when they reportedly stole equipment and copyrighted software containing information on genetic research. The stolen contents were reported to be of high value.

Thang later confessed to authorities that at 4am on August 21, he broke into the centre via a window on the second floor and stole a Dell laptop belonging to the facility.

Thang later called Vinh in September to help him break into the centre again; where the men stole a Vaio laptop, a Nokia E71 mobile phone and an electronic heater.— VNS
