Two arrested with 900,000 meth pills and 3kg of 'ice' in Chiang Rai

By The Nation


Two suspected drug smugglers were arrested at a Chiang Rai hotel following a brief gunfight with police after which 900,000 methamphetamine pills and three kilograms of crystal meth were seized.


Acting on a tip-off, a team of narcotics suppression police staked out at a border point in Ban Tham Phatong in Tambon Tha Sud in Chiang Rai's Muang district. They saw a car come out of the forest at 12.10am on Saturday.


Police followed the car to the Kriang Suwan Hotel and watched two men carry bags into a room. Police surrounded the room and informed the men that they would be searched.


Police said one of the suspects, Pallop Ruangsri 45, pulled out a .38 revolver and opened fire at police. He tried to climb over a barbed wire fence to escape but was shot once in the hip.


The other suspect was identified as Charnrit Suwanmol, 35.


Pallop was sent to the Chiang Rai hospital under police custody.


The drugs were found in eight fertiliser bags inside the car.


Charnrit told police that he and Pallop were hired to smuggle the drug from the border to a central province.

Do these guys keep recycling the same meth pills over and over....giving them to different police forces so that they can make a bust and have the inevitable photo op? 


We never seem to here what happens to the suspects after the arrests and the photo op for the cops? Do they ever go to jail or do they escape from custody and are never seen again. Why do we never see the photo op of these guys escaping. 


I suppose I am baffled....the count 900000 meth pills takes about 10 days counting 24 hours a day. They got 2 million pills earlier this week and another 2 million pills last weekend...who is counting all these pills?


For me they should make this suff legal and sell it through pharmacies, cut out the dealers and get some tax off it.
