Around 3.5 million methamphetamine pills were found abandoned in forested land at the side of a rural road in Chiang Rai early yesterday evening, police said on Tuesday.


Villagers called Phaya Meng Rai police station at 4.30pm to report that 18 bags had been spotted in forest on a road off highway No 1326 in Moo 1 village, in Phaya Mengrai district’s Tambon Mae Pao.


Police checked and found an estimated 3.5 million meth pills inside the bags.


They believe the drugs belonged to a Hmong drug ring that has been operating in the Chiang Saen, Wiang Kaen and Thoeng districts of Chiang Rai, and that the bags were hidden pending being smuggled to a central province.
