The Vietnam Narcotics Investigations Department (C47) under the Ministry of Public Policy said it had coordinated with relevant forces to uncover an inter-provincial drug transporting ring, seizing 150 packs of heroin.
The drug was hidden in a truck travelling on Hanoi-Thai Nguyen expressway at the section in Yen Phong district, northern Bac Ninh province. The truck was specially designed with a two-layer loading body covered by canvas to hide the drug.
The truck driver confessed he was paid 70 million VND (3,080 USD) to transport the drug. The case is being investigated.
