QUẢNG BÌNH - Three people have been arrested in connection with an alleged plot to smuggle drugs into the central coastal province of Quảng Bình.

Local police also seized some 6,000 tablets of synthetic drugs, which were hidden on a subject’s body.

Đinh Đại Thắng, 35, from Minh Hóa District’s Hóa Hợp Commune was arrested on Saturday at Hồ Chí Minh Trail.

A short time later police moved in to arrest two more subjects, aged 37 and 41, in Bố Trạch District, who were waiting to receive the goods.

The two were recently released from prison and have criminal records for drug smuggling, the police said.

According to the police, Thắng has successfully shipped some 16,000 tablets from Laos to Việt Nam for consumption in the central provinces.

All three men were being questioned by investigators.

It is the largest drug trafficking case, so far, in Quảng Bình Province. – VNS
