Huge amount of heroin seized in Yunnan
KUNMING, July 13 (Xinhuanet) -- The frontier guards in Ruili City of southwest China's Yunnan Province have cracked a major drug trafficking case, seizing 10,050 grams of heroin, said sources with the city's frontier defense brigade.
At 21:30 on July 10, the city's frontier defense brigade was tipped by the local residents on a possible drug deal, and immediately sent out detectives to the informed site, about 400 meters east to the gate of the Jinyuan Hotel in the city.
However, before the detectives could spot the suspected drug trafficker, a man suddenly dropped a carton in his hands and fled the site. The frontier guards later found 25 blocks of heroin weighing 10,050 grams in the box, but failed to apprehend the suspect, who was believed to have crossed the national boundary.
Ruili is located on the borders of China and Myanmar.
