Police in the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai have arrested two men bringing 20,000 pills of fake Viagra into Vietnam for sale.

Truong Thanh Toan, 29, and Hoang Ha, 34, are under investigation for "trading in fake curative medicines" after their arrest Thursday while in possession of the drug.

According to investigators, the 5,000 tablets belong to a package without a proven origin.

Later inspections revealed the drugs labeled as Viagra were all counterfeit.
