Two suspected drug mules were arrested in Chiang Rai on Wednesday night while allegedly trying to transport 5 million methamphetamine pills from a border village.

The arrests were made at 9.30pm in Ban Huay Ya Sai village in Tambon Pa Daed in Mae Saruay district.The arrest were made after police and Army troops, manning a road checkpoint on the Chiang Rai-Chiang Mai road in Tambon Pa Daed, spotted a pickup truck parking and changing route apparently to avoid the checkpoint.

The troops trailed the pickup from a distance until it stopped in front of Ban Huay Ya Sai village. They waited until the two men carried several boxes onto the pickup before they arrested them.

 

The two suspects were identified as Jessada Promsai, 42, and Phet Phonatee (age unknown). Both are Chiang Rai residents.

An estimated 5 million meth pills were found in 13 boxes.

 

The authorities believe the suspects were trying to move the drugs from the border area into downtown where they would then be smuggled down to a central province.

5 million!!! Who is making this sh!t? That should be the focus of every cop. Thee poor buggers look like uneducated farmers who were told they could make an easy baht or two. I feel for them and their families. The big guys, the top dogs, why aren't they ever found?

 

Sorry, stupid me....I know...they're making the sh!t.

That's big business alright. 5M tabs?  Half of Thailand must be on this stuff.  Haven't tried it myself but, as ever, I will try anything once just to see what all the fuss is about.

Possibly this was the "diversion" to allow the major load to progress to its destination.

So you don't think 5m tabs would be a major load ?

Yes these men would be The Puppets but I think while they getting checked a bigger order would have gone elsewhere.  The stooges get caught with low grade tablets whilst the professionals head elsewhere for the Big Coup.

Do you know that as a fact , or is that just what you think may have happened ?

In this part of the world - NO. Across the border in Burma there are many factories producing met-amphetamine on an industrial scale - billions of ya-ba tabs per year! The chemicals used to produce the drug come from India and China as Burma cannot manufacture them.
