The picture looks like just another Thai drugs bust – but this time the hefty merchandise is of an entirely different nature – frozen beef that came from India.
Police who made the seizure in Songkhla said that it could carry diseases and be dangerous for consumers as it had entered the country illegally without customs’ clearance.
The 3,700 kilos of compressed and frozen beef originated in India and came into the country via the Malaysia border.
Police in Sathing Phra said it was headed for the south and Bangkok where it would be sold in markets for 220 – 240 baht a kilo.
That represented a 50% mark up on its original price. The driver was arrested. Abdullah Chit Hayisalamae, 48, said he was just a mule and Mr Big, the owner of the shipment, was a trader in Songkhla.
Police detained the driver and are looking for Mr Big.
