During the inspection of an air shipment from France to Vietnam on Thursday, officials in Hanoi uncovered 19 kilograms of suspicious white crystals believed to be ketamine that were concealed by being mixed with confectionery and consumer goods, the General Department of Vietnam Customs said on Friday.

The air consignment consisted of two boxes, weighing approximately 30 kilograms in total.

Each box contains 10 yellow small containers, each of which contains a plastic bag filled with white crystals suspected to be ketamine, with a combined weight exceeding 19 kilograms.

The items were concealed in the lower section of cocoa containers, under a layer of cocoa powder, and intricately integrated with confectionery and various consumer products to evade detection by authorities, who are currently investigating the case.
