Ha Tinh City police said that the unit had just arrested Nguyen Trung Thanh (born in 1975, residing in Hanoi) for pretending to be a police officer, fraudulently appropriating property.

According to the investigative agency, on February 6, after handling personal work in Duc Tho district, Nguyen Trung Thanh took a bus to Ha Tinh city to play. Here, Thanh arose the intention to pretend to wave a taxi to approach the driver, in order to cheat and appropriate property.

Around 12 o’clock on the same day, Thanh waved a taxi driven by Mr. H. and asked to take him to Dien Chau (Nghe An). When the taxi had just run for a while, Thanh asked the driver to take him to the Traffic Police Department of Ha Tinh Province Police to pick you up.
