On July 16, members of Lao Cai Customs Department worked with Lao Cai Provincial Police to arrest two people who were illegally transporting 9 kg of drugs in the area of Na Pao village, Ban Lau ward, Muong Khuong district, Lao Cai province.
They are Sung Phung (born in 1983, residing in Na Loc 3 village, Ban Lau commune, Muong Khuong district) and Vang Trung Khoa (born in 1990, residing in Mao Choa Su village, Ta Ngai Cho commune, Muong Khuong district).
At the time of arrest, the two drugs smugglers were traveling on a motorbike (license plate No. 24B-974.94) while carrying a sack. When they were discovered, Vang Trung Khoa who sat behind immediately fled. However, Khoa was quickly captured by the scouting team.

According to the testimony of the subjects, Sung Phung and Vang Trung Khoa discussed buying drugs for sale and contacted Giang A Cho.
Then, Giang A Cho contacted Sung Seo Vanh and suggested if they had drugs, they would bring them to Lao Cai to sell.
At midnight of July 15 and early morning of July 16, Vanh took a bus from Thanh Hoa to Lao Cai carrying 9 kg of methamphetamine and delivered it to Giang A Cho. Then, Cho brought the drugs to Sung Phung and Vang Trung Khoa and received VND 1.29 billion and then he transferred the money to Vanh.
When the subjects had completed the transaction, the competent forces discovered and arrested them with all exhibits.
