Police in Lao Cai Province, northern Vietnam have detained a well-known Vietnamese TikToker, nicknamed ‘Tuan Saker,’ who is also the administrator of Facebook page Beatvn, for carrying drugs.
Tuan Saker, with his real name being Truong Ngoc Anh Tuan, 38, was detained at a hotel in Sa Pa Town, a famous tourist destination in Lao Cai, on Tuesday for an investigation into the crime of ‘illegal possession of narcotics,’ local police reported.
The detention was made after a police team conducted an inspection at the Pao’s Hotel, as part of its security patrols during the week-long Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday, which began last Friday.
The team suddenly detected drugs in room 704 of the hotel, where Tuan Saker was staying during his tour of the town.
The team seized 29.93 grams of narcotic substances, including 3,4-methylenedioxy-methylamphetamine (MDMA), ketamine, marijuana, and some suspected synthetic drugs.
After being escorted to the Sa Pa police’s office, Tuan Saker, a resident of Hanoi’s Cau Giay District, confessed he had brought the drugs from Hanoi for use during his tour of Sa Pa.
Tuan Saker has been well known on the social network TikTok, which has attracted more than 28,000 followers.
The TikToker has also been famous as the administrator of the Facebook page Beatvn with more than three million fans.
