HA NOI (VNS) — Local police on Thursday seized 1.7 tonnes of dried shredded squid, suspected to be made of rubber or plastic, that was being transported without documents.

Police said they discovered the squid, together with more than 12,000 boxes containing a variety of medicines, at Kiosk B6 of the Duc Thang Company at Giap Bat Bus Station.

Nguyen Hong Minh, a member of the police team investigating fake products and violations of intellectual property rights, said that when the squid was cooked, it smelt of burning rubber or plastic. When soaked in water, the squid's colour would change from yellow-red to white. It could be stretched as easily as elastic bands.

All seized goods were subjected to testing.—VNS
