Cash truck thief gets 6 years

A former armored truck driver has been sentenced to 6 years in jail and fined 200,000 yuan (US$32,161), the Zhabei District People’s Court ruled yesterday.

The 29-year-old convict, surnamed Xiao, had been in trouble over gambling debts, said the court. He eventually stole 1.1 million yuan when he heard that his company intended to sack staff who were gambling, the court explained.

Xiao intentionally tampered with the back door of a cash truck in January when his colleagues were collecting money from a bank, and then under a pretext of fixing the broken door was able to gain access to cash stored in the vehicle, said the court.

After grabbing the money, Xiao excused himself to use the toilet and then fled to Nanjing, the court said.

Persuaded by his family, Xiao delivered himself to the police, said the court.
