La Van Thuan, 42 years old, rode a motorbike carrying more than half a million USD. He arrived at the border area to be taken to Cambodia and was arrested by the police.

Thuan was criminally detained by the Police of An Giang province, Vietnam to investigate the act of illegally transporting goods and currency across the border, according to Article 189 of the Penal Code.

Thuan declared that he was hired by a man in An Giang to bring a black nylon bag with 530,150 USD inside.

Ask him to cross the border to Cambodia and someone will welcome him. When the job is done, you will be paid a few hundred USD.
