KUNMING: Two suspects were captured with over 11kg of drugs seized from a recent drug trafficking case in southwest China's Yunnan Province, local authorities said on Saturday (April 4).

After receiving a tip-off regarding a drug trafficking case in late March, police in the city of Mangshi, Yunnan's Dai-Jingpo Autonomous Prefecture of Dehong bordering Myanmar, set up a task force to investigate the case.

On March 29, police intercepted a suspected car and caught a suspect on the spot, seizing 11.5kg of methamphetamine and heroin hidden in a carton.

Two days later, another suspect who intended to deliver the drugs was also caught by the border police.

Further investigation into the case is underway.

Yunnan is a major front in China's battle against drug crime, as it borders the Golden Triangle known for its rampant drug production and trafficking. - Xinhua/Asian News Network
