LÀO CAI — Police in the northern border province of Lào Cai’s Văn Bàn District arrested a drug smuggler and seized nearly 3kg of heroin yesterday.

The suspect, Phạm Sơn Hải, 48, from Lào Cai’s Phố Lu Township, was caught carrying 10 nylon-wrapped packs of heroin – some 300g each – at toll station IC16 on the Nội Bài-Lào Cai Expressway.

The police also seized VNĐ21 million (US$940), a Toyota Hilux car and three mobile phones.

The investigation at the suspect’s house in Lào Cai’s Khánh Yên Township also led to the seizure of another VNĐ143 million ($6,400), two electronic scales and equipment used in drug use.
