Nguyễn Mạnh Hùng successfully stole a motorbike and earned VNĐ7 million (US$300) by selling it on to another person.
The next time, he stole a motorbike parked in front of a rented house in Nha Trang, central Khánh Hòa Province, and rode it away. Like previously, he decided to sell the stolen motorbike.
Hùng offered a price of VNĐ2.5million ($110) to the owner of a motel. However, the man refused to buy it because it looked too old.
Hùng left the bike in the yard waiting for another ‘customer’ to come along.
The next day when he came back, the motorbike had been stolen.
The ill-fated thief not only received no profit from his ill-gotten gains but was also sentenced to several years in prison after being caught by the police.
Lesson learned: keep a close eye on your stolen property, karma is sure to come back and bite you. — VNS
