Officers in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang have apprehended five Chinese men wanted by Chinese police for organizing gambling.

Colonel Tran Muu, deputy director of the municipal Department of Police, confirmed on Sunday that the agency had coordinated with the Ministry of Public Security to arrest the suspects.

The five men, namely Liu Yi Hu, 43, Yu Hong Can, 48, Xua Liang, 39, Xu Heng, 46, and Luan Cheng Ming, 37, were nabbed on the evenings of November 21 and 22, Muu said.

The Chinese nationals started organizing illegal gambling activities in 2013. Their ring was recently broken up by police officers in China.

Transactions within the ring were worth up to hundreds of millions of Chinese yuan (CNY100 million = US$14.2 million).

The men were also suspected of disturbing public order and kidnapping their debtors.

The suspects had been constantly on the move to hide from police officers before their arrests in Vietnam.

After their arrival in Da Nang, the men also switched motels multiple times to avoid detection, Muu said.

In late September, Da Nang police arrested and initiated legal proceedings against five Chinese men aged 22 to 38, along with a Vietnamese woman, for tricking an underage girl into having sex and live-streaming the sexual intercourse.
