Alleged masterminds behind drug smuggling gang using ambulances captured

By The Nation




Security forces have launched a crackdown on gangs trafficking drugs using ambulance, and have arrested two alleged masterminds, Niyom Termsrisuk, secretary-general at the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB), said on Wednesday (January 22).


He said the Narcotics Suppression Bureau joined hands with the Armed Forces security centre to arrest on January 15 the "masterminds" behind an international drug smuggling gang using ambulances. Their roles were revealed when seven suspects were arrested in Phayao province on March 30, 2019, and 398kg of “ice” and 81kg of ketamine seized. All the convicts will face the death penalty. 


The two alleged masterminds behind the operation were revealed to be “Mr Payao” and “Ms Sureerat”, who allegedly ordered and monitored the transportation from North and South. 


On July 2019, a truck containing 1,500kg of “ice” was found in Pathum Thani and police learned about the two masterminds. Both fled to Nakhon Pathom province but the combined efforts of the security forces led to their arrest on January 15. They are being interrogated to find more members involved in the drug smuggling gang.
