TÂY NINH — Border officials have discovered eight kilograms of heroin being smuggled into Việt Nam hidden in a game box.
The Mộc Bài International Border Gate made the find on a bus heading into the country from Cambodia, said Võ Thành Ngoạn, director of the border gate customs department.
On July 17, customs officers used scanning machines and discovered the heroin which was hidden in a box of puzzle games.
The customs, in co-ordination with border guards and police, temporarily seized driver assistant Hàn Quốc Khánh, 38, from An Lạc Ward, Tân Bình District in HCM City.
After further investigations, police arrested Nguyễn Hằng Ni, 30, who works in a nail salon in Phú Nhuận District in HCM City. — VNS
