Police in the southern province of Dong Nai have arrested 27 people after raiding two businesses on suspicion they were selling cooking gas under other companies' brand names, a local official said Sunday.

Major Nguyen Huu Sao, chief of the Dong Nai police's economic management crime division, said all the suspects worked for Xuan Hang Gas Company and Gas Viet Company from where over 20 tons of gas and thousands of cylinders were also seized.

Police said during the raid Saturday they found five trucks with gas cylinders at Gas Viet, which planned to fill and sell them as famous Vietnamese brands like NT gas and Saigon Petro.

The same day they busted Xuan Hang Company where a truck was filling ten tons of gas. The company is suspected of producing around 1,000 cylinders every day for selling under other brand names.

According to preliminary information, the companies sold their products mainly in Dong Nai, Binh Duong, and Ho Chi Minh City.

Further investigations continue.
