Lang Van Thai at the police station
The main suspect in the network is Lang Van Thai, 38, from Phuc Son commune, Anh Son district in Nghe An province.
The police first launched the probe back in November, 2018, when they heard information relating to the operation of a large-scale drug ring in the locality.
Thanks to valuable information provided by a private source, the police were able to visit a location that was intended to be the main drug trading spot on January 18.
However, Thai frequently changed the trading location to deceive the police.
At 3:00 a.m. on January 19, the suspect was caught red-handed while in possession of 8 bricks of heroin, 4 kg of meth, 2,000 pills of synthetic drugs, and other contraband.
The case is being investigated further.
