Police in Vietnam on Tuesday announced that they had busted a massive drug-trafficking ring from Cambodia.

The Ministry of Public Security in collaboration with other agencies arrested Diep Trong Hieu, 33, and Tang Minh Tri, 35, from Ho Chi Minh City for illegal drug trading, and seized five grams of synthetic drugs at around 7:30 pm on April 4, according to their information.

After searching Hieu’s house, officers confiscated nearly 100 grams of meth.

Police officers also made an urgent search of the residences of other suspects and arrested Phan Thi Thanh Nhan, 31, at Yen Trang Hotel, District 10, Ho Chi Minh City while she was allegedly delivering drugs.

Following Nhan's testimony, investigators searched a warehouse on Lac Long Quan Street, Ward 5, District 11, Ho Chi Minh City, and found 49 heroin cakes, 13 kilograms of stone narcotics, eight kilograms of synthetic drugs in the form of ketamine, 11,000 pills of ecstasy, 1,000 bottles of water-based drugs, 5,000 packages of powdered drugs, and many related exhibits.
