2 separate cases: 6.5 million yaba pills and 10kg of ‘ice’ seized
Ten drug-dealing suspects have been arrested in recent raids along with more than 6.5 million yaba pills and 10 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine or “ice” with a street value of Bt1.3 billion, Deputy National Police Commissioner Pol General Chalermkiat Srivorakan said on Monday.
He told a press conference in Bangkok that officers had so far this fiscal year confiscated 100 million yaba pills and more than 4,000 kilograms of “ice” worth Bt7.6 billion. Chalermkiat said Narcotics Suppression Bureau (NSB) officers had arrested five Hmong suspects in Chiang Rai on Saturday while they were allegedly transporting 6,392,000 yaba pills from Chiang Rai to Ayutthaya in a 10-wheel truck.
In another case, NSB officers on Monday morning arrested four suspects at a checkpoint on Phetchkasem Highway in Chumphon’s Tha Sae district while they were transporting 10 kilograms of “ice” and 200,000 yaba pills from Chiang Mai to a customer in Songkhla’s Hat Yai district. The suspects reportedly told police they were hired for Bt1 million to transport drugs
