HẢI DƯƠNG – Hải Dương province drug investigators have arrested four men for supposed involvement in a drug trafficking ring.
Police arrested Nguyễn Ngọc Quân, 21, living in Quảng Ninh Province’s Cẩm Phả City; Phạm Văn Hưng, 29, and Đỗ Ngọc Hà, 33, both of the Central Highlands (Tây Nguyên) province of Kon Tum; Nguyễn Thành Công, 29 from Nghệ An Province’s Nam Đàn District.
According to the police office, the arrested traffickers purchased drugs from China and then transported them to Việt Nam to be mainly sold in the Central Highlands region.
Local police discovered a limousine running on Móng Cái District-Hà Nội City route at night of May 18. They ordered the car driver to stop for a search.
Police seized four packages from the car containing synthetic drugs. Driver Nguyễn Ngọc Quân admitted he was hired to transport the drugs from Móng Cái of Quảng Ninh Province to Kon Tum Province.
During further investigation, police arrested three others, of whom Phạm Văn Hưng and Đỗ Ngọc Hà were two key members controlling the ring from afar by smart phone.
