Taipei, May 1 (CNA) A man surnamed Shih has been turned over to law enforcement authorities for allegedly sneaking 312 kilograms of ketamine from China with a market value of NT$150 million (US$4.9 million) into Taiwan, investigators announced Friday.
Investigators said that another case in which they seized 667.4 kg of ketamine in Tainan in February led them to track down Shih.
Shih imported the ketamine in a shipment of 12 wooden crates of large-sized Chinese characters used on shop signs or advertisements imported from Guangdong province to Kaohsiung via Keelung. [FULL STORY]
