KIEN GIANG (VNS) – The Viet Nam Coast Guard seized 1,300 smuggled cigarette packs from a motorboat coming from Cambodia in Kien Giang province's Ha Tien town on Saturday.

The coast guard unit seized the goods when the smugglers jumped into the water after a one-hour chase.

A coast guard officer said that smuggling was increasing at the border in Kien Giang Province as the year-end neared, with many smugglers transferring products into small packages at different times throughout the day to avoid law enforcement units.

The coast guard unit handed over the case to local authorities for further investigation. — VNS
