Malaysian woman caught smuggling 4kg of cocaine into Vietnam

HANOI (Viet Nam News/Asia News Network): A Malaysian woman was arrested at Tan Son Nhat Airport while attempting to smuggle more than 4kg of cocaine into Vietnam on Wednesday (Nov 28), HCM City Customs reported.  
According to airport authorities, the 28-year-old landed at the airport at about 9pm on Monday (Nov 26) on a flight from Brazil transiting in Dubai.  
After checking her luggage, customs officers used an electric drill to take apart the cabin-size case and found two bags of white powder carefully wrapped in nylon and hidden in the lining of her bag.  
A quick test confirmed the powder was cocaine.  
The woman admitted that she was asked by her boyfriend to transport the drugs from Brazil to Vietnam for US$1,200 (RM5,021).  
Last month, police also arrested another Malaysian woman who tried to smuggle 4.1kg of cocaine hidden in food cans into Vietnam.  
Vietnam is one of the strictest countries in the world against drug smuggling. Anyone found to illegally transporting or selling more than 100g of cocaine or heroin can face a life sentence or even the death penalty. - Viet Nam News/Asia News Network
