Five days ago, the local police busted a drug trafficking ring, seizing 700kg of crystal meth and arresting three suspects.

Being raided by the police, the group abandoned the drug on the roadside near a salt field in Quynh Thuan commune, Quynh Luu district in the province. Two suspects managed to escape.
