After an unspecified period of investigation and surveillance, officers of the public security ministry found Astle hiding in Ho Chi Minh City and Andrew in the neighboring Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province.
The ministry’s officers joined forces with police units in HCMC and Ba Ria-Vung Tau to arrest the duo and transported them to Hanoi to hand over them to the U.S. police.
The timing and other details of their capture were not revealed.
