Police in Hanoi has arrested a man on suspicion of smuggling cars into Vietnam.


Initial investigations showed Ngo Doan Phuc, 33, and his gang imported cars temporarily for export, which imposes low or no tax.


They then would fake documents showing the cars were too old to export to foreign markets and sell them here.


Police have confiscated a Hummer, a Land Rover, a Toyota Prado and a Lexus worth nearly VND6.3 billion (US$330,015) in total.


They were imported from Laos and registered at a traffic police office in the northern province of Bac Giang, according to Hanoi police.


An investigation is currently underway.
