The heroin was being transported in two cars by Vàng A Cáng, 42, and Vàng A Dự, 28, who both live in Tân Lập Commune, Mộc Châu District, the northern mountainous province of Sơn La.
The heroin, wrapped in a number of nylon bags, was hidden in five 30-litre plastic cans.
Dự admitted to the police that he and two other accomplices Mùa A Sáu and Màu A Là were hired by Cáng to transport the heroin for sale.
If successful, Dự would have received VNĐ200 million (US$8,800) whereas Sáu and Là would receive VNĐ100 million ($4,400) each.
Colonel Đỗ Văn Hoành, director of the provincial police, said that it was a new heroin trafficking ring, and the traffickers had researched the local area carefully.
