A woman from Da Lat City, a popular tourist destination in Vietnam’s Central Highlands, has been arrested for selling milk tea spiked with cannabis to local residents and visitors.

Police in Da Lat City, Lam Dong Province examined an automobile parked in front of a hotel on To Hien Thanh Street on Monday afternoon and discovered 15 bottles of milk tea, officers said.

Drugs were then found in the milk tea inside all of the 15 bottles in a test.

Nguyen Thi Thai Dung, the 23-year-old car driver, was taken into custody for further verification, while her vehicle and milk tea bottles were confiscated.

At the police station, Dung admitted to having mixed the milk tea with cannabis and advertised the product on Facebook.
