Police in southwest China have seized nearly 270 kilograms of heroin hidden in (63) beehives being transported by truck from Burma.
Police said they had been tipped about the drug shipment weeks earlier (on February 29th), and were waiting when the shipment came across the border this month (on April 4th) in a mountainous area where Burma borders China's Yunnan province. Their raid netted the largest amount of heroin seized in China this year.
Four suspects from eastern China were arrested on drug trafficking charges.
