300 kg drugs seized in China

Beijing, May 26 (IANS) Nearly 300 kg of drugs have been seized in China’s Hubei province and 12 suspects detained during the latest police crackdown on people making and selling them.

The drug ring was operating out of a deserted poultry farm and deflected suspicion by claiming to be processing medicine, reported Xinhua citing the public security bureau of Xishui county. It took about three months to bust the ring.

In southwest China’s Yunnan province, police seized 25 kg of drugs during a two-week anti-drug trafficking campaign.

On May 18, police seized nearly 7 kg of methamphetamine dropped by a man who jumped into a border river after realising that police were looking for him.

On May 19, about 18 kg of heroin was confiscated from two smugglers who disposed of the drugs before fleeing.

Under the country’s criminal law, smuggling, trafficking, transporting or producing 50 grams or more of heroin is punishable by 15 years in jail, life imprisonment or the death penalty.
