HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi Police have busted a gang that made and traded in fake food in the capital city's Ha Dong District.
The police detained three people and confiscated more than 20 tonnes of fake supplementary food.
Ha Noi Police's Economic Crime Investigation Department (PC46) said on Friday they had caught two suspects who were transporting five cartons of Costar and Royal Jelly capsules on two motorbikes.
They failed to show the invoice and other documents showing the products' place of origin to the police.
The two suspects were later identified as Luong Tuan Long and Le Dinh Hanh, both 24, employees of VQTech Health and Chemical Development Ltd, located in Van Quan residential area in Ha Dong District. Both are residents of the district.
Subsequent investigation led to the raid of VQ Tech Company's store, where the police found 20 tonnes of faked supplementary food.
Police also seized computers and many packages, labels and other items used for making fake food.
Faking supplementary food produced by the company at a medical distribution centre in Thanh Xuan District was also confiscated.
People have also arrested Director of VQ Tech Company Tran Nhu Quynh, 28, and her two subordinates for investigation.
Quynh said she had been producing, transporting and selling fake supplementary food since October 1014.
Police are investigating the case further. — VNS
