Viet Nam News - - NATIONAL -

QUAÛNG NINH — Quaûng Ninh Po­lice have busted a trad­ing ring smug­gling heroin and other drugs from China to Vieät Nam.

They said it was led by Nguyeãn Hoaøi Thanh, for­mer deputy di­rec­tor of a travel company in the north­ern prov­ince of Laøo Cai.

Thanh, 40, was caught car­ry­ing heroin in Traàn Phuù Ward in Quaûng Ninh Prov­ince’s Moùng Caùi City.

After in­ves­ti­ga­tions, po­lice seized five oth­ers said to be ac­com­plices.

The po­lice seized more than 3,000 ec­stasy pills, more than 700g of crys­tal metham­phetamine and more than 30g of heroin.

Thanh ad­mit­ted to the po­lice that his travel company had failed so he joined hands with Chi­nese in smug­gling.
