Police and rangers intercepted an attempt to smuggle 5 million methamphetamine pills from Myanmar into Chiang Rai early Wednesday but two suspected couriers fled.

 

A team of police from the Mae Fah Luang police station and rangers form the 31st Ranger Taskforce were patrolling a road in Moo 6 village in Tambon Mae Salong Nok in Mae Fah Luang district when they spotted a pickup truck at 3am.

 

The authorities flagged the pickup to stop but it sped off. The team gave chase and caught up with the vehicle in Moo 7 village of the same tambon.

 

The pickup stopped and two men fled into the nearby forest.

 

The authorities found 30 bags at the back of the pickup with estimated 5 million meth pills inside.

It shouldn't be to hard to trace the owner of the pick up and use the fingerprints to wrap up the case providing they actually check .

If I were a law enforcement person, I would rather capture the millions of Baht (or Dollars) in cash; who cares about the pills.

I wonder where they store the hundreds of millions of these?  Surly they are in a secure location away from anyone with a corrupt mind that may want to use them for financial gain.  And, they are counted and packed in labeled and sealed containers of 10,000 under video surveillance?  Sorry, of course it's all on the up and up 😄
