Manaphee Sulong, 49, Saiful Baharijedo,28, and Ruslan Ladeng, 38 were on their way in two vehicles towards the province of Narathiwat in the far south when the lead vehicle on lookout patrol was stopped.

Police at the Surat checkpoint interviewed Manaphee and Saiful whose stories didn’t match and searched their Mitsubishi Lancer but found nothing incriminating. However, Manaphee soon spilled the beans saying that a follow up Honda car was transporting the drugs.

At 8.30 am this second car came to the checkpoint and 89,600 Ya B pills were found concealed in a door panel. Both vehicles had Bangkok license plates.

Police understand that the orders for the delivery came from inside a prison. The standard of concealment in the Honda was very good and police suspect that this vehicle had been used to transport drugs many times before.

The three suspects were detained awaiting charges.
