HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam: Customs officers caught a 26-year-old Chinese woman carrying 2.2kg of methamphetamine hidden in her luggage at Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday.
The woman, Li Chunying, had hidden the drugs in a complicated way in her luggage, officers said, adding that they have handed over the offender and the drugs to anti-drug police. Li has been charged with “illegally transporting drugs,” police said.
Before arriving in Vietnam, Chunying had travelled through several countries without being detected, sources said. So far this year, customs officers have uncovered at least five cases of drug trafficking.
