Vietnamese border guards and police officers have just captured two locals for purportedly smuggling illegal drugs from Cambodia into Vietnam.

Police officers from the Ministry of Public Security and southern An Giang Province were finishing procedures to search and arrest Du Quoc Cuong, a 29-year-old man from the south-central province of Khanh Hoa, and Trinh Cong Nghia, a 41-year-old man from An Giang, on Saturday evening when the two were found carrying a large amount of drugs from Cambodia, a source told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper.

Cuong and Nghia were crossing the border from Cambodia into An Giang, located in southwestern Vietnam, on a motorbike that bore a Vietnamese number plate at 4:00 pm, the source said.

The two were intercepted when they had just gone past the Dong Ky ferry station in An Phu District, An Giang, with 26.6kg of alleged drugs.

Of the amount, 8.2kg was suspected to be synthetic drugs, the remaining 18.4kg being crystal meth.

LATEST UPDATE: Cambodia traffickers lead to Vietnam mega-bust.

Police seize 600 kilos of meth in Vietnam
Tuesday, April 16, 2019, 15:21
Police in central Vietnam have seized more than half a tonne of methamphetamine in one of the largest drug busts in recent years in the country where synthetic drug use is on the rise.

Four people were arrested after police stormed a house in central Nghe An province where they found 600 kilograms (1,300 pounds) of meth, some of it stuffed in speaker boxes.

The meth shipment was "about to be loaded onto trucks... for delivery", according to a report from Cong An Nhan Dan, the official mouthpiece of the Ministry of Public Security, after the bust on Monday.

Dozens of police swarmed a house where the drugs were being stored, occupied by an elderly couple believed to be related to one of the dealers, according Tuoi Tre newspaper.

Police said they were investigating the source of the meth and where it was to be shipped to.

The bust follows a weekend seizure of 30 kilograms of drugs in southern An Giang province, including about 18 kilograms of meth that was stored in packages for tea and vitamin supplements.
