Police in northern Thai Nguyen Province seized 200kg of heroin and 400 meth-amphetamine pills after stopping a truck early yesterday (February 17) on the Thai Nguyen expressway.


Two traffickers arrested

Two men -- Pham Van Thao, 35 from Thai Nguyen Province, and Le Van Hoat, 32, from northern Bac Kan Province -- were arrested.

Police said Thao and Hoat were allegedly hired by another man to transport the heroin from Son La Province to Bac Kan Province, ultimately for sale in another country.

Investigations are continuing.
