LẠNG SƠN – The police in the northern mountainous province of Lạng Sơn have captured a Chinese national for entering Việt Nam illegally, while carrying nearly US$1 million in cash.
The local police said last week they stopped a four-seater car to check if the necessary paperwork was in order. While conducting the check, they found a Chinese man, who was carrying a backpack filled with US dollars.
The man, a 26-year-old resident of China’s Guangdong Province, confirmed that the money — $930,000 in cash — belonged to him. He had transferred the money from China to Việt Nam through a trail in Văn Lãng District’s Tân Mỹ Commune. Later, he had rented a car to go to Quảng Ninh Province.
The case is being investigated further. – VNS
