During border patrol, Nậm Cắn’s border forces found Mùa Bá Chò, a 30-year- old local, on a trail in Nậm Cắn Commune, Kỳ Sơn District, carrying a suspiciously large bag on his shoulder. 

On inspection, it was found that the bag contained more than VNĐ2 billion in cash, in two kinds of denominations: VNĐ200,000 and VNĐ500,000.

Chò admitted he was hired by an unknown Lao national to deliver the cash across the border.

He was promised VNĐ2 million in return.
