A 76-year-old Vietnamese woman has been caught trying to smuggle a kilo of methamphetamines onto a flight bound for Australia.

Authorities stopped the woman late Friday after discovering the illicit drugs concealed inside jars of fish paste.

She was arrested at Ho Chi Minh City’s International airport before she boarded the plane.

Investigations are ongoing.
