Police acting on a tip from an informant stopped a Thai man in a Hilux pick-up outside the cargo area of Don Mueang airport on Wednesday evening. 

 

In the pick-up were 563 E-cigarettes, 2,150 items for smoking electronic cigarettes and 4,323 bottles of vaping fluid. 

 

Such items are all illegal in Thailand in their importation, sale and use. 

 

Ekphisit or "Wow", 24, said he was just the delivery man - he was paid 400 baht a time and had done this four times already. 

 

Don Mueang police are expanding the inquiry to find out who lies behind the business.

No fines and jail for Wow?

A court would have to decide that.

If the Investigators were smart; they'd copy Western practice - in letting the shipment keep moving, so they could trace it all the way to Final Destination...

That is a convenience fee for not going to court,😁 ones who refuse it, pay only 600 baht (from memory) in court but get arrested and deported immediately after the court.

 

In other semi normal circumstances, tourists can get away with paying 20 000 and know someone who managed to pay 2000, but lost his gear as well 

 

But keep in mind, there is BIG difference between possession of one for personal use in public and importation for distribution purposes in large quantities

Surely if they knew it was a consignment of contraband, let it be taken to where it was to be delivered then bust the driver and the recipient.
