Local police have conducted investigations into 245 cases of drug trafficking, captured 294 suspects and prosecuted 232 cases with 290 criminals detained as a result.

The number of drug trafficking cases which lead to arrests and prosecutions are rapidly increasing in the province, showing that traffickers take advantage of the border province to transport drugs to a third country.

Methamphetamine was smuggled from China using many sophisticated methods, making the work to prevent and fight drug trafficking more difficult according to the local law enforcement force.
