Tanawit Yukkrairik, 22, a local told police that around 1.30 am he had heard six shots ring out and seen two men on a motorcycle race off. Two other men were also seen running into the temple and out the other side.

Police examined the Ford Ranger truck and saw that it had red mud and dead insects on it. They believe it was used to transport the drugs from the north for sale in Bangkok. The shooting was probably done by the man on the back of the motorcycle as the handover was taking place and a disagreement ensued.

Monks found the drugs as they were about to go on their alms rounds and alerted police.
