Border police in southwest China's Yunnan Province recently seized more than 60 kilograms of methamphetamine hidden in coffins and arrested the suspected trafficker.

The 330 bags of drugs were found in a van attempting to enter China from Myanmar on Thursday, after the police received information that the suspect, surnamed Bai, was planning to traffic drugs into the country.

The police said two "empty" coffins inside the van raised their suspicions. They found red powder that smelled like meth at the bottom of the coffins, dismantled them and found the bags of drugs in hidden compartments.

Further investigation into the case is underway.
