According to initial reports, the police completed the arrest of 59-year-old Nguyen Dinh Giang of Hung Son commune in Anh Son district at 4:00 on November 28.

Upon performing a search of his home a total of 10 cakes of heroin, nine kg of methamphetamine, and 20,000 synthetic drugs were discovered hidden under the roof tiles.

The original bust led to police to expand the case further, leading to the arrests of three additional suspects, including Hoang Doanh Diep, 38, Nguyen Cong Cuong, 35, and Pham Van Hung, 42.

In addition to the arrests the police were also able to seize a further 200g of heroin, approximately 1,000 synthetic drugs, and two cars.
