While in Korea, many people don’t even think twice about leaving their cellphones or laptops unattended at coffeeshops or restaurants.
That may not be such a good idea after all.
Busan Saha police recently arrested 72 people around the city for stealing tens of millions of won worth of laptops and cellphones and re-sold them at cheaper prices.
They arrested the thieves who stole 89 units over a three year period with a value of around 78 million won.
Police also arrested 17 who bought the stolen goods, which were traced using their serial numbers.
