Vietnamese border soldiers and customs officers have detained a man for smuggling 700 bullets from Laos into Vietnam earlier this week.

Soldiers at the Cha Lo international border gate in the north-central province of Quang Binh said on Wednesday that they had cooperated with customs officers to arrest a young man unlawfully carrying cartridges from Laos into Vietnam.

The man was identified as Dinh Xuan Hien, residing in Hoa Hop Commune, Minh Hoa District, Quang Binh.

Hien is in custody pending further investigation into the case.

He admitted that he had bought 14 cartridge boxes containing 700 new bullets in Laos and planned to transport them into Vietnam for sale.

The man crossed Cha Lo around 6:00 pm on Tuesday and was apprehended after being unable to show documentation proving the legitimacy of the bullets.

Upon noticing suspicious signs from the man, border soldiers and customs officers checked him and found the ammunition.

Civilians are banned from storing or selling ammunition in Vietnam.
