HCMC – Two armed, masked robbers stormed into a toll station in Dong Nai Province’s Thong Nhat District of the HCMC-Long Thanh-Dau Giay Expressway this morning (the third day of Tet), and got away with a huge amount of money, local media reported.

According to video footage from the toll station’s security camera system, the two robbers were wearing sports shoes, black hats, white shirts and black jackets. They were wielding what looked like a gun and an electric rod when they threatened staff of the stoll station, and took away a huge amount of money.

Nguyen Thi Hoai Phuong, deputy director of Vietnam Expressway Services Engineering JSC (VECE), which manages and operates the expressway, confirmed the robbery to the local media this morning, saying that VECE is working with local police over the incident. In addition, the staff sustained minor injuries, Phuong said.
