Police in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta have arrested 17 men and women after they were caught using drugs inside two rooms of a local motel on Saturday.
Officers from the anti-drug unit under the Department of Police in Vinh Long Province raided Huy Thao Motel, located in Ward 3, Vinh Long City, at around 2:00 am.
A total of 19 men and women, aged 20 to 25, were showing signs of being high on drugs inside two rooms within the venue.
Seventeen out of the 19 people later tested positive for drugs.
Officers also found a type of white powder, which was potentially a narcotic, being contained inside a plastic bag and on a plate.
All 17 drug users were then escorted to the police station for further investigation.
In mid-March, the provincial police department also captured five men and one woman after catching them red-handed consuming narcotics in a karaoke shop in Ward 4, Vinh Long City.
