Drugs officers made one of the biggest ‘ice’ or crystal meth busts in years worth a staggering 6 billion baht if reaching its final destination. Two Malaysians were arrested, reports Thaivisa News.
Authorities said the drugs probably came from Laos and were on their way to Malaysia where they were likely to go to another country. The bust was made after two cars were searched near the border with Malaysia near Sadao, Songkhla, on Tuesday.
Chang Kim Sui and Lim Yian Hun were taken into custody following a tip off from drug suppression units in their native Malaysia that a consignment was in its way to the country.
Police are busy setting up roadblocks for the pre and post Songkran period and this helped with the arrests.
In all a total of 282 kilos of pure ice was found. Drug suppression officers said that the value of the drugs would go up in Malaysia and be worth some 6,000 million baht in a third country. The haul was the biggest in years, they said.
In another ice arrest a Thai man was arrested in possession of three kilos of ice in Nonthaburi, outside Bangkok. Napsaen or Prok Pheungsujarit was also paraded before the cameras as police and drug agents celebrated the massive bust yesterday.
