The top prosecutor's office in Vietnam on Friday charged seven people including three drivers of local carrier Jetstar Pacific for stealing nearly 8,200 liters of jet fuel.
The drivers, all male aged 33, 35 and 51, were in charge of carrying maintenance engineers to Jetstar aircraft at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City, and fuel taken from the aircraft to a storage for regular tests.
They stole the fuel during the delivery between December 2014 and January 2015 and sold it to two men for nearly VND95 million (US$4,250).
The buyers then hired a man to resell it to another for a profit of more than VND13 million.
Police busted the case after around 2,000 liters of the fuel had been sold to consumers in nearby provinces.
