Large Meth haul found

On Monday, authorities reported that soldiers had seized 14 sacks containing over 4.2 million methamphetamine pills near the border in Chiang Khan district of northeastern Thailand.

Lt. Gen. Adul Bunthamcharoen, Commander of the 2nd Army Region, and Maj. Gen. Noratip Poynok, Commander of the Surasakmontri Force, disclosed the discovery and seizure of the narcotics haul. They stated that soldiers patrolling the Thailand-Laos border confiscated 14 sacks containing 4,290,000 speed pills.

The sacks were discovered following a tip-off from local informants, who alerted authorities about a large shipment of illicit drugs being smuggled from Laos into Thailand through Chiang Kan, via Chiang Khan-Tha Li Road. The drugs were subsequently brought to Chiang Khan police station.

In a separate operation on Monday morning, two suspects were apprehended in Fang district, Chiang Mai. The operation, conducted by the Chaiyanupap Special Task Force, the Pha Mueang Force, and other law enforcement agencies, led to the arrest of the suspects, identified as Yapoo, 36, and Chako, 40, both residents of Mae Ai district. The suspects were found carrying backpacks containing 200,000 meth tablets.

Authorities were alerted to the drug shipment entering the country from Myanmar via Ban Suan Cha-Ban Pa Kha Road in tambon Mon Pin. Officers spotted the suspects around 6 a.m. as they traveled from the Myanmar border.
