Such a large scale bust demonstrates that synthetic drug labs and production in Laos is becoming more evident and that it is a significant transit nation for drug smuggling into Vietnam.

Bun Lieng, 33, and Thao Xay, 38, from the province of Salavan in Laos were arrested about 2pm at the La Lay border gate in the district of Dakrong in Quang Tri Province.
