On March 20th, the Dong Nai Province police of Vietnam announced the arrest of three suspects involved in a firearm manufacturing and trafficking ring.
The arrests were made after reports of many groups of young people in the area using guns during fights. The provincial police discovered that the guns came from the same source and launched an investigation into those providing them.
The gun trafficking ring was found to be jointly operated by Nguyen Quang Cuong, Hoang Viet Toi, and Bui Vu Nhat Huy, all residents of the southern province’s Bien Hoa City. According to the investigating officers, the suspects bought components for making firearms, with Cuong responsible for assembling and repairing military guns, while Toi and Huy were responsible for selling the weapons.
During the arrests, the police seized 14 guns of different types, over 420 bullets, and equipment for making guns. They also confiscated 26 pills believed to be narcotics. The suspects and the seized items were brought to the police station for further investigation.
The police are expanding their investigation into the case and are looking for any possible accomplices. They are urging anyone with relevant information to come forward and cooperate with the authorities. The arrests are part of the Dong Nai Province police’s efforts to crack down on illegal weapons and drug trafficking, ensuring public safety and order in the region.
