Three Chinese people were expelled from Vietnam on Friday after attempting to pickpocket US$700 from an Indonesian passenger during a flight from Indonesia to Vietnam.
One of the Chinese passengers was caught before handing the money to his accomplices, Le Truong Giang, spokesman of the national carrier Vietnam Airlines, told Vietnam News Agency.
The Vietnam Airlines flight's crew then informed police at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.
When the airplane arrived at the airport, the foreign thief was arrested and later deported together with his accomplices.
The money was returned to the Indonesian passenger, Giang said.
