Two Laotian men, Vi Phon and Bop Bi Xi Na Khot, are taken into custody on Thursday for smuggling drug from Laos to Vietnam
Vietnamese and Lao police joined forces to arrest two Laotian men Thursday while they were transporting 6,000 pills of synthetic drug near the border.
Vi Phon, 42, and Bop Bi Xi Na Khot, 33, were caught carrying the drug in a car near the Lao Bao border gate as they were on the way from Laos to Vietnam.
The duo admitted to the police they bought the drugs in their home province, Savanakhet, and planned to transport them to Vietnam’s Quang Tri Province for sale.
Another man who accompanied with these two men in the car escaped into the forest.
Lao police will investigate further into the case.
