Runaway drug deal stash methamphetamine pills

On the Mekong River’s beachfront in the Ban Phaeng district of Nakhon Phanom province, army rangers made a significant catch of over 250,000 methamphetamine pills while three smugglers fled quickly. The drugs were discovered concealed in sacks that the fugitives had cruelly left behind.

The paramilitary rangers in the Ban Phaeng district set up an ambush by the riverbed after receiving information about an upcoming narcotics deal. According to Bangkok Post, they saw three people early this morning dragging two hefty loads close to Phaeng Tai village.

When the rangers questioned the group and instructed them to stop for an inspection, their response was prompt and expected. They hurriedly threw the sacks away and fled, vanishing into the night. Following a thorough check of the abandoned sacks, 129 packets containing 258,000 methamphetamine pills were discovered.
The drugs were quickly turned over to the local law enforcement after being found at Ban Phaeng police station.

In two significant drug trafficking incidents three weeks ago, the Chiang Rai Police Force recovered approximately two million methamphetamine pills. The Region 5 Provincial Police detained more over 90 million meth pills between October 1, 2022, and July 19, 2023, and they also seized goods worth 453 million Thai Baht.

A group of senior members of the Region 5 Provincial Police and policy experts from the Office of the Narcotics Control Board made the statement today.

One suspect was detained with 200,000 methamphetamine pills in the first incident, which happened under the purview of the Chiang Rai City Police Station.
