CHONGQING - Police in Southwest China's municipality of Chongqing have busted a cross-border drug trafficking gang, seizing 135.04 kg of methamphetamine and more than 1.2 million yuan ($174,471).

In December 2018, police in Nan'an district, Chongqing, learned that a gang had been smuggling a large amount of methamphetamine from Myanmar via the southwestern border province of Yunnan, to Chongqing.

After preliminary investigation, police in Chongqing and Yunnan teamed up and arrested three suspects when the suspects were on their way back to Chongqing in March this year.

A total of six suspects have been detained.
