Police seize over 13 kg of heroin in Yunnan

KUNMING: Police in southwest China’s Yunnan Province have nabbed a suspect and seized more than 13 kg of heroin in a drug trafficking case.
After receiving a tip-off in late August that drug dealers were planning to smuggle drugs into China, police in Shidian County immediately set up a task force to investigate the case.
They caught the suspect in a service area along the route from Yunnan’s provincial capital Kunming to neighboring Guizhou Province on Sept. 4, seizing 40 pieces of heroin weighing 13.88 kg from the interlayer of the trunk of his vehicle. Further investigation into the case is underway. – Agencies
