Police in the central province of Khanh Hoa said Wednesday they have arrested an officer for forging official documents to pocket license plate registration fees.
Lieutenant Le Thi Minh Trang, 28, is being held for four months for "abuse of power," Tuoi Tre newspaper reported.
Trang had been assigned to collect registration fees from vehicle owners, issuing a copy of the receipt and keeping the original at the office.
But she allegedly found a way to write two different amounts on the two copies, making residents pay extra and keeping the difference.
It is not known how much she stole in this manner but the amount is thought to be large.
The police are investigating further.
