A teenager in central Vietnam's Binh Thuan Province swallowed two bags of narcotics when questioned by police.

Nguyen Ngoc Son, 17, is being investigated by police of Ham Tan District for "illegal storage of narcotic substances" after it was confirmed Tuesday the bags he swallowed contained drugs.

Four days prior, police saw Son riding a motorbike while displaying abnormal behavior. They asked Son to stop.

Son then put two plastic bags in his hands at the time into his mouth and swallowed them whole. Police suspected the bags contained drugs, and so took him to the Binh Thuan general hospital for a check-up. Doctors managed to recover the bags from his body, found to contain ketamine and ecstasy pills.

Son admitted he was delivering the drugs to local addicts.
