Five Drug Dealers Arrested on Sino-Myanmar BorderBorder guards in Lincang, southwest China's Yunnan Province, cracked two drug smuggling cases during February 12-13, confiscating 3.97 kilograms of heroin and arresting five suspects.
On February 12, a group of border guards were preparing to have something to eat when one of them found a passerby quite suspicious.
So, he stepped forward to question the passerby, who pretended not to know the Chinese language and then ran away with a travelling bag. The guards chased the suspect until catching him. He confiscated from the bag 3.97 kilograms of refined heroin.
The suspect confessed that he is a native of Longling in Yunnan Province. He crossed the border illegally and lived in a village in Myanmar. For years he helped some Myanmese plant drug crops. This is the first time that he carried drugs to Baoshan for other people. The drug trafficker promised to pay him 30,000 yuan upon delivery of the drugs.
On February 13, border guards in Lincang ferreted out a piece of heroin weighing 120 grams and captured four suspects as they inspected sleepers on a train running from Gengma County to Kunming.
