Lao Cai (VNA) – Police in the northern border province of Lao Cai have broken a drug trafficking ring, seizing two suspects and 20 bricks (7kg) of heroin.

The police earlier followed a trans-national drug trafficking ring with the involvement of both local residents and foreigners.

On early August 27 morning, they caught the two suspects – Chang A Cu, born in 1990 and from Muong Hoa commune of Sa Pa town, and Chau Thi Cha, born in 1992 and residing in Lao Cai city - when they were illegally trading the drugs.
