Narcotics investigators from the Ministry of Public Security have arrested a 20 year-old woman for attempting to smuggle more than four kilograms of methamphetamines into the country.
On Monday, authorities discovered a large bag of the drug at the bottom of Tran Ha Tien's luggage as she disembarked from Qatar, according to officials at Tan Son Nhat Airport and HCMC Criminal Science Institute.
The drug was prohibited from export and import via non-commercial means.
First investigations found that Tien was involved in a drug trafficking ring from Tanzania in Africa to Vietnam, via Qatar.
The police investigation continues to be underway.
