Last week, the district reported some trees in Dai Mo Street had been stolen at night.
But two days later, the trees were found re-planted on a real estate construction project near Dai Mo Street, according to dantri.com.vn.
Before being stolen, the trees were planted in a public area which is now an entrance to the project.
“Those trees were planted before the project started. It was six or seven years ago,” a local person told the newspaper.
When police started investigating the theft, the trees were re-planted but not in the same place.
According to local people, the re-planting has made the real estate project more beautiful. VNS
