Police in Hanoi say they are investigating a burglary at one of their stations a week ago in which a gun and a motorbike were taken when all officers were out on duty.
The motorbike belongs to Pham Van Chien, head of Nhi Khe Commune’s police station, local media reported.
He kept a gun and handcuffs in the motorbike's underseat storage.
“All the officers were mobilized to deal with a traffic jam nearby, and they forgot to lock the door,” Chien said of the incident June 8.
District police are looking into the case.
