A New Zealand man was sentenced to one year in jail by a HCMC court on Monday for stealing two laptops from a store.

Stalker Walter Logan, 34, came to Vietnam as a tourist in May 2019 and stayed in a hotel in District 1.

In October he stole a laptop each on two separate occasions from a hardware store in District 1. They were worth over VND25 million ($1,080) in total, the HCMC People’s Court heard.

He sold them to two unidentified European men, and authorities are looking for them.
