HCMC – The Dong Nai Province police have announced the arrests of members of a firearm manufacturing and trafficking ring today, March 20, with three suspects, 14 guns of different types, over 420 bullets, and other equipment being seized.
The three suspects, all residing in the southern province’s Bien Hoa City, are Nguyen Quang Cuong, 33, Hoang Viet Toi, 33, and Bui Vu Nhat Huy, 18.
