Investigating police officials prosecuted Tran Sinh and Nguyen Thi Ngoc Dung, from the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau and Tran Thi Thiet and Van Thi Thanh, from the southern province of Dong Nai for smuggling gunpowder.
Sinh and Dung were caught red handed by the police transporting a bag of 20.5 kilograms of explosives on February 9. They confessed to bringing the explosives from Ba Ria-Vung Tau to the central province of Phan Thiet City of Binh Thuan where the dynamites would be shipped to Phu Quy Island, 100kilometers from Phan Thiet. The gunpowder was meant to be sold to fishermen to catch fish.
Police in Binh Thuan worked in coordination with their counterparts in Ba Ria-Vung Tau and Dong Nai to nab Tran Thi Thiet and Van Thi Thanh and successfully seize an additional consignment of 120 kilogram of C4 dynamite and 1,395 assorted fuses.
