Police in Đồng Nai on Sunday started a criminal investigation against two men allegedly involved in the theft of VNĐ2.2 billion (US$100,000) from a toll station on the HCM City-Long Thành-Dầu Giây Expressway.

The suspects - Trần Tuấn Anh, 26, from the Mekong Delta province of Tiền Giang, and Nguyễn Vũ Hoàng Nam, 29, from the northern province of Nam Định, were arrested on Friday at Sài Gòn Railway Station.

They will be detained for four months while the investigation takes place.
