Border guards were able to catch two Vietnamese men at 12:30 on July 24 on National highway 7 in Ba hamlet, Huu Kiem commune, Ky Son district, as they were in the process of transporting drugs into Nghe An.

The suspects were identified as Xong Ba Hu, 30, and Xong Ba Va, 31, both of whom are residents of Muong Ai commune in Ky Son district.

At the scene, police forces seized 60,000 pills of synthetic drugs, 2 kg of methamphetamine, along with one grenade.

During their arrests, the suspects attempted to use the grenade, at one stage even pulling the pin in a bid to flee the police. Fortunately, their attempts to set off the grenade were unsuccessful and they were overpowered by the arresting officers.

A further investigation into the case is currently underway.
