Recommended Posts

Spanish woman arrested allegedly with 3.1 kgs of 'ice'

A Spanish woman was arrested at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport for smuggling 3.1 kilograms of 'ice' - crystal methamphetamine, police said Tuesday.

Following a tip-off that a drug smuggler will pass through the airport, police Monday afternoon apprehended 52-year-old Maria Neves Garcia Alcaraz, who traveled from Ethiopia's Addis Ababa by an Ethiopian Airline EL608 to Thailand, after they found the 'ice' hidden in her travel bag's bottom. But she claimed that the bag wasn't hers but an African man from Ghana's Accra City gave to her to take to Indonesia's Bali City and that she didn't know the bag had the drug in it. Police charged her for having the drug in possession with intention to sell.

Will they never learn? Single woman coming from Addis Ababa, unknown guy from Ghana asks her to take a suitcase to Bali via Bangkok, doesn't know it contains drugs? It's hard to have any sympathy for such people.

Its even harder to believe that she didn't know that they were drugs in her bag, 3 kgs is quite a noticeable weight when you lift it.

Spain- Ethiopia - Bali is such a logical route.

So many Spanish housewives go shopping for coffee in Ethiopia before flying to Bali ( where coffee can't possibly be as bad as the Nescafé they serve in Thailand however).

Better for her to be caught in BKK than Bali .

The question should be , who is doin all the tipping off recently of these drug mules ? Is it a greater source that is setting these people up to protect their own drugs trade ?

Just seems strange that recently there have been daily cases of drug arrests at the airport , and it can't be the local doin the work at the airport as they are always asleep !

I think that anyone involved in drugs reaps what they sow but its strange that there have been so many caught here over the past few months is it down to better police work or an increase in drug trafficking.

I personally don't care.

Just so glad it is happening.

Now if the government would follow the law & execute the offenders according to Thai law.

Just a dream.

In Singapore & Indo she would be krapping her pants.
