The southern province of Phuket is cracking down on drug smuggling, monitoring all potential transportation routes.
Anupong Wawongmul, the Permanent Secretary of Phuket province, chaired a meeting with related agencies to keep them updated on the drug control situation. Anupong said heroin and cocaine are spreading in Phuket as prices of both drugs are falling and that the number of drug arrests has surged since the beginning of this month. The quantity of drugs seized also increased.
He said all potential narcotics transportation routes, over land or water, are being watched 24 hours a day, adding that most drugs are transported in small boats from nearby provinces. He then urged members of the public to contact authorities immediately should they suspect any drug-related activities were taking place.
