Security officials at Ho Chi Minh’s Tan Son Nhat airport have arrested an alleged thief who snatched things from the hands of unsuspecting victims at the airport recently.
They caught Hoang Dai Phuoc, 22, Thursday afternoon grabbing the handbag of a passenger at the domestic terminal.
An airport source said many complaints had been received from passengers in the past few months about a young man snatching their bags.
Officers checked camera footage and have been following Phuoc as the prime suspect.
Phuoc has admitted to all his crimes. The airport on Friday handed him over to police for questioning.
