Tran Hoa Quang, 48, from HCM City, Tan Phu District, was taken into custody last Friday after he was found to possess six bags of meth pills, weighing about 1kg.
Quang was travelling in a bus going to HCM City from Vientiane (Laos), when the provincial border authorities arrested him. He later said he had been hired to smuggle the drugs into Viet Nam.
