According to the District 3 police, Mai Tan Sy of District 3, Le Dinh Nguyen of District 7, Le Truong Bac of Hoc Mon and Huynh Ngoc Thanh of District 4 have been taken in for questioning about "property theft".
Sy and Nguyen were arrested on July 20 after they were caught completing the paperwork for selling a stolen vehicle.
Using information the duo provided, the police investigated 14 others for stealing and selling motorbikes.
They said Sy and Thanh, the kingpins, bought vehicles from motorbike robbery gangs at low prices and made fake licence plates and papers for them before handing them over to Bac and Nguyen to sell or mortgage for VND10-13 million each.
Searches of their houses turned up nine motorbikes and many documents believed to be forged by them.
The investigation continues. —VNS
