LÀO CAI — Police in the northern province of Lào Cai arrested two men on Saturday caught in possession of 8kg of heroin.

Phía admitted to police that he was hired by a foreigner to sell the drugs for VNĐ540 million per kilo (US$4,300).

Police in the northern province of Thanh Hoá also arrested a man on Friday afternoon for illegally storing 6,000 methamphetamine pills at his house in Mường Lát District’s Trung Lý Commune.
