A border guard from an anti-smuggling unit in the southern province of An Giang reported that some unknown miscreants had thrown two plastic bags of gasoline into his house, possibly as a threat, on March 24.

Hoang Van Thanh, deputy head of the An Giang Drug Crime Combat Team, said he was leaving home at around 4 a.m. that day when he found the door locked from outside.

He called his relatives who informed the police.

Officers arrived and found the bags near the door on the ground and second floors.

Each bag was estimated to contain a liter of gasoline though the bags had burst open and the fuel was almost gone.

Thanh suspected it to be the handiwork of a gang whose two members were arrested with four tons of illegal sugar by his unit on March 20.

"I have been living here for tens of years and have [done nothing else] to be threatened with such acts," he said.

Thanh's unit and the police are investigating.
