Munitions factory workers punished for pilfering scrap metal 

11 employees of a munitions factory in North Pyongan were involved in a robbery crime of scrap metal because of the state’s failure to provide proper rations to workers. 
Security cadres including a member of a Ministry of Social Security team were also involved in this crime, and over a ton of scrap metal was found in the employees’ homes per person. 

The individuals were sent to forced labor camps for organized theft of state property because they only stole scrap metal. However the sentence could have gone far to execution if they had stolen even a single bullet.
