Fifteen people have been caught under the influence of drugs at a café and karaoke shop in the northern Vietnamese city of Hai Phong, after police carried out a surprise raid on Saturday morning.

Officers caught the drug users red-handed at the Gadan City karaoke café in An Duong District, Hai Phong, the An Duong police department confirmed on Sunday.

The entertainment facility, located by the Re River, is owned by Tran Minh Tu.

After raiding the venue, law enforcers discovered 11 people under the influence of ecstasy and other synthetic drugs in room No. 2 and two couples consuming drugs in room No. 3.

A test later revealed that 13 out of the 15 people taken had tested positive for drugs.

They were transferred to a local rehab center while an investigation began.
