Police from Nghe An Province in north central Vietnam on Wednesday night arrested a man as he attempted to smuggle nearly 7.3 kilograms of heroin and 12,000 ectasy tablets from Laos.
Mua Ba Tu, 27, was arrested at 11 p.m. by border guards who had beefed up surveillance in the area for several months, said Colonel Dinh Ngoc Van, head of the province border guard command, in a Tuoi Tre newspaper report.
Tu, who police believe is part of a gang, moved to Laos in 2010, the report said. The police are looking for other gang members, it added.
