HCM CITY (VNS) — The HCM City Criminal Science Institute yesterday released the results of the tests done on three samples of yellow viscid substances sent earlier by the HCM City Customs.

According to the results, the samples contained pseudoephedrine and ephedrine which are often used to manufacture crystal methamphetamine.

The substances were hidden in three jars of honey that weighed a total of 2.6 kilograms, and had been sent by a person living in HCM City's District 8 to a person in Australia on September 22. The HCM City Customs sent samples of the substances for tests as they had doubts about their nature.

The honey jars contained 1.5 kilograms of pseudoephedrine and ephedrine.

Last month, the city customs had discovered four kilograms of pseudoephedrine hidden in yellow sugar that was being sent to Australia. — VNS
