PSNews- Nam Tu Liem traffic policemen have arrested a suspect who was carrying approximately 10kg heroin and 17,000 tablets of synthetic drugs.
Earlier, the Nam Tu Liem District Police had had reconnaissance information about a drug trafficking ring that often transports drugs from the mountainous province of Son La to My Dinh coach station, Hanoi and then to Thai Nguyen province for sale. The police had known that a resident of Moc Chau town, Son La, named The, was a key element of the criminal ring.
The reconnaissance information also released that The might carry drugs from the northwestern area to My Dinh coach station. Commanders of the district police directed the criminal police office to draw a plan to catch the drug dealer in red.
At 8.30 am, November 14th, Nam Tu Liem district police scouts detected suspect Ngan Van The catching a bus to Hanoi about 2km away from Moc Chau town. They believed that the suspect would carry a large amount of drugs to Hanoi for sale. They secretly followed the suspect.
