Hanoi (VNA) – The Hanoi Customs Department said on November 23 that its officers and other forces brought to light a case of using express delivery service to bring cocaine into Vietnam from Canada.

On November 22, three parcels of goods at the northern international post centre in Hanoi to be delivered to Hai Phong city were suspected to contain drugs.

When the goods were received by Nguyen Thi Bich Hanh in Le Chan district, Hai Phong city and her company at the Hai Phong Post Office the same day, they were detained by anti-drug officers and policemen of Hai Phong and Hanoi.

Anti-drug officers found 25.56 grams of white crystals wrapped as chocolate balls in these parcels, which, as Hanh confessed, are cocaine.
