Police in Ho Chi Minh City arrested four Jetstar Pacific porters for stealing passenger's property on Thursday.


According to Tan Binh District's police, a 50-year-old passenger

disembarked from flight No.737 from the central city of Hai Phong to discover he had been fleeced.


At Tan Son Nhat International Airport's baggage carousel, he found his luggage slashed.  VND3.2 million (US$164.18) and jewelry worth containing some 0.7 oz gold had disappeared from his luggage.

After the theft's report, Jetstar Pacific launched an inspection and caught four of its porters red-handed dividing the property.

In unrelated news, also on Thursday Tan Binh's police said that at around 3-4 a.m. three crooks used a welding torch to break into an ATM machine on Cong Hoa Street.


The criminals absconded with VND822 million ($42,175).


They all wore helmets and facemasks, and covered the glass booth of the machine before going to work, police said.


Nearly two hours later a trio attempted the same scheme before being scared off by bank guards.


A police investigation is underway.
