HCM CITY (VNS) — Two kilos of Pseudoephedrine – a main ingredient used to make methamphetamine – have been confiscated by customs officials at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCM City.

The substance, worth about VND2 billion (US$95,000), was hidden in food packages being transported by a Vietnamese national who was checking in to fly abroad.

This is a new method used for transporting illegal drugs via the airport, said a customs department official on January 7.

The case has been transferred to the police for further investigation.— VNS
