Two men were arrested for allegedly smuggling and selling a large amount of methamphetamine, prosecutors said Sunday.
Suwon District Prosecutor’s Office said that it arrested two men surnamed Jung and Yoo on charges of smuggling 7 kilograms of methamphetamine worth 23 billion won ($22 million) from China and selling to Korean brokers from July 2012 for more than a year. It also indicted a 43-year-old man surnamed Oh without detention for assisting the illegal act.
The prosecution put three brokers on the wanted list and requested to the Chinese prosecution criminal extradition of the drug suppliers.
Suwon prosecutors have toughened the crackdown on drug smuggling since July last year, arresting about 30 and booking 60 without detention.
