Thailand Post said routine X-ray screening revealed suspicious contents within the boxes, which had originated in Udon Thani. Custom officers were summoned to open and inspect the contents.

Police suspect a transnational drug ring could be involved, and authorities will be watching for a larger shipment similarly concealed.
