ZHENGZHOU - Police in the central Chinese province of Henan apprehended 114 suspected members of an organized cross-border drug syndicate.

The police also seized 142 kilograms of heroin, methamphetamine and caffeine, one handgun, 15 bullets, two grenades, 21 vehicles and 12.3 million yuan ($1.86 million).

Police noticed that a known drug user and dealer from Pingdingshan city frequently contacted a cell phone number registered in Southwest China's Yunnan province. They began to track his movements from May 2014. The investigation led to the recent raid.

The syndicate smuggled drugs from abroad and sold them mostly in central China regions.
