HCM City (VNA) – A ring trafficking drugs from Cambodia to Ho Chi Minh City has been uncovered by the city’s police after more than four months of investigation.

Police said on September 11 that they had arrested seven persons born between 1976 and 1996 involved in the ring, with all of them also drug users. Thirty-five kilogrammes of different kinds of drugs, along with two guns and 21 bullets, had been seized.

The ring hired two apartments in Thu Duc district and District 8 to cover their activities. They trafficked drugs from Cambodia to HCM City through the vicinity of Moc Bai Border Gate in the southern province of Tay Ninh.

Further investigation into the ring is underway.

At a ministerial meeting on drug crime combat in Hanoi on September 10, Colonel Vu Van Hau, deputy head of the police department for drug crime investigation under the Ministry of Public Security, cited data of the UNODC as showing that the number of methamphetamine trafficking cases uncovered in East and Southeast Asia rose 8-fold between 2007 and 2017, reaching 82 tonnes and accounting for 45 percent of all such cases around the globe. The seized meth in the region was estimated at 116 tonnes in 2018.

Police arrested nine people from two different gangs in Saigon and Binh Phuoc Province Wednesday for allegedly trafficking over 37 kilograms of drugs.

Nguyen Hoai Phong, 23, Hoang Cong Thinh, 25, Ngo The Bao Ngoc, 26, Vuong Van Tuan, 43, and Tran Thi Le, 43, allegedly smuggled dozens of kilograms of synthetic drugs from Cambodia to Saigon and concealed them in several apartments, the local police said.

Phong, Thinh and Ngoc are believed to be the masterminds.

Earlier this month a police raid of an apartment in Sunrise City View on Nguyen Huu Tho Street, District 7, found Thinh and Phong selling drugs to husband and wife Tuan and Le. They also found eight kilograms of drugs, 16 rounds of ammunitions and several guns there.

Ngoc was caught carrying a briefcase in Cu Chi District with 14 kilograms and 20,000 pills of synthetic drugs.

A raid of his apartment on Hoang Dieu Street, District 4, turned up more drugs and a pistol with five bullets.

The police are investigating.

All these busts seem to have the yamma or meth smuggled in the same brand of tea packaging.

Must make busts easier.
