A man in HCMC was fined VND7.5 million ($304.93) for livestreaming and falsely saying he was selling 7,000 seized vehicles from the police's evidence storage.

The man, 35, livestreamed on Jan. 19 to sell the motorbikes seized by police from traffic violators inside a storage field in District 11.

In a video on social media, rows of motorbikes, sealed by the police, can be seen lined up, and the man offered to sell them for VND3 million per motorbike, several times cheaper than the market prices.

The police said the man, among a group of five to six people, entered a facility by the traffic police of District 11 to see the seized motorbikes, which have been auctioned.

There were over 230 old and unowned motorbikes. The man however entered the area of seized motorbikes and recorded the video for a livestream.

Amid an alcohol violation campaign, the number of seized vehicles in HCMC has increased, leading to storage all over the city being overloaded.

Last year, around 155,000 motorbikes and cars were seized.

Auctioning off the vehicles is a lengthy process.
