A Taiwanese man was arrested in central Ha Tinh Province on Monday for allegedly stealing three pickup trucks.

The Ky Anh Town police have taken in Chang Yu Jui, 38, an employee of a company in town, for questioning.

Later he admitted to the police that he had stolen two more vehicles belonging to Dinh Uy and Huu Luong companies also in town and pawned them too.
