ĐẮK LẮK — Police in Đắk Lắk Province on Sunday announced they had seized an illegal stash of firecrackers.
On Saturday, they had stopped a lorry driven by Nông Hoàng Dương, 31, on the Hồ Chí Minh Trail in Ea Khal Commune, Ea H’leo District, and discovered 120kg of firecrackers hidden in the back.
The investigation found the firecrackers belonged to Hoàng Văn Hắc, 53, from Ea Khal Commune. Hắc admitted to police he had bought the firecrackers in the northern province of Cao Bằng and transported them to Đắk Lắk for sale.
The police said that firecracker and substandard food trafficking by coach often increased ahead of the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday, so they would continue to carry out inspections to discover and prevent more violations. — VNS
