QUANG TRI (VNS)— Border guards in the central province of Quang Tri in collaboration with Lao police on Tuesday busted a major drug trafficking ring from Laos that operated in Viet Nam.
Three Lao nationals, aged between 25 to 63, were arrested following a raid on an area near the provincial Lao Bao Border Gate.
Additionally, 10 packs of heroin, a car with Lao number plates and a K54 rifle were seized.
Initial investigations showed that the suspects bought the drugs in Vientiane and brought them into Viet Nam by road via the border gate.
The border guards handed over the suspects and confiscated items to Lao police for further investigation. — VNS
