On Tuesday, the pair made a pit stop at a store located in Duc Hoa District, situated in the southern province. They proceeded to purchase a case of beer.
Upon buying the beer, they approached a staff member and requested to convert two US$100 dollar bills into Vietnamese currency.
While the employees were occupied with counting the Vietnamese currency hidden in a drawer beneath the table, one of them cunningly exploited the situation. Seizing the perfect moment, they swiftly grabbed a purse brimming with cash from the tabletop and hastily made their escape.
While the couple made a hasty retreat to their car parked just outside the shop, the remaining staff swiftly pursued them and managed to reclaim both the purse and the box of beer.
