Vietnamese and Lao border guards have coordinated to arrest a Laotian man accused of attempting to smuggle 30,000 methamphetamine tablets into Vietnam.
Xi Pa Xot Bun Tham, 50, was arrested on April 7 at a village in Lao’s Khammuane Province near the border with Quang Binh Province in Vietnam.
Bun Tham confessed that he bought the drug abroad and was attempting to hire Vietnamese people in Laos to smuggle it to Vietnam.
Quang Binh border guards said they had followed the case for a month before arresting him.
