HA NOI — Border guards in central Ha Tinh Province, in co-operation with Lao police, yesterday arrested a suspected drug trafficker after a two-day investigation that led to the confiscation of one tonne of marijuana and 39 cakes of heroin.
On Saturday, Vietnamese border guards and Lao police stopped a car in Laos' Bolikhamxay Province and found the marijuana as the accused trafficker fled the scene.
One day later, the trafficker was arrested with the heroin. A car with Lao plates was also seized.
