Police get their hands on haul of opium in Mae Hong Son border

After receiving a tip-off, police officers and soldiers decided to lie in wait for smugglers near a natural border between Mae Hong Son and Myanmar.

 

Their wait paid off because just after midnight on Monday (September 21) they managed to swoop down on a 42-year-old Myanmar national carrying close to 5 kilograms of opium in his backpack.

 

The suspect was later taken to the border patrol police camp for interrogation and was charged with possessing illegal narcotics.

 

More drugs are being smuggled into Thailand since they no longer fetch a high price in Myanmar.

While a mule train with 500 Kgs of YaBa, made its way across the border

2 Km away 🙄, they will sacrifice one man for the big load to get through.

Every time I read of a drug  bust, it makes me happy that not all of the drugs are getting to their destination.

Geezer

And I'm glad when the stash gets through. It should ALL be legal!

So people here think that opium is a harmless drug?  Talk to some

workers who see the opium, or at least heroin users who die

from their overdoses.  Mary jane or the ganga stuff, is softer,

but enough of my friends and relatives who are dead from the

other heavy shiite has made me hate heroin, and the other cocktails

that have killed off lots of users. Fentinal and that kind of stuff is not

something to fool around with.

Geezer
