The Hanoi police have arrested a Chinese man for allegedly trying to transport four kilograms of heroin from Vietnam to China, a source told Thanh Nien Tuesday.
Wang Ling Long was arrested earlier that day after officers found six bags of white powder, later identified as heroin, in his room in a hotel in Hoan Kiem District.
He told police that he was hired to deliver the drugs to a man in Beijing. He had flown into Hanoi and received the drugs at the hotel.
The police are investigating.
Vietnam has some of the world's toughest drug laws. Those convicted of possessing more than 600 grams of heroin or more than 2.5 kilograms of meth can face the death penalty.
