Earlier on January 4, while the two German tourists, Lars Graf (33) and Macro Cerchia (34), were bicycling on the provincial road 885 (in hamlet 3, Phu Nhuan commune), a man snatched their bag from behind. The bag contained a cannon camera and a camera lens.
Receiving the information about the case, the Ben Tre Provincial Police conducted an investigation, took special measures and promptly recognized the suspect. The local police then arrested the suspect, named Nguyen Ut Het (26, local resident).
At the meeting to receive their lost property from the local police, the two German tourists expressed their sincere thanks and spoke highly of the provincial police for their excellent expertise as they found and returned the lost property to them in such a short time.
