Border guards, both in Quang Binh and at the Cha Lo international border gate, noticed a suspicious man on the passenger bus from Vientiane heading to Dong Hoi, Quang Binh on November 8.
The man was identified as Nguyen Duc Nam, born in 1996 in Quang Binh. He was caught red-handed while attempting to transport the drugs from Laos to Vietnam. Local police seized a hidden nylon bag containing 122 methamphetamine pills and other contraband.
Nam admitted he purchased the drugs in Bolykhamxay province, Laos and attempted to bring to Vietnam to sell.
The case is still under further investigation.
