CHUMPON:-- A 51 year old woman is in custody after being caught with an estimated 210 million baht with of drugs stashed in her car.

On Tuesday, Chumphon police told reporters how they had stopped Mrs Siripan Chatraweewong at a roadside checkpoint in the Pathiu area of the province on Sunday.

Originally Mrs Siripan told police that she was travelling to Hat Yai from Bangkok, where she had bought some clothes which she intended to sell.

Daily News reports how police became suspicious of Mrs Siripan when no clothes were found inside her Toyota Camry car.

Upon closer inspection of the vehicle, police found a secret compartment in the rear bumper of the car. Stashed inside the compartment were 680,000 yaba pills and 5kgs of crystal meth.

According to Daily News, Mrs Siripan allegedly confessed to transporting the drugs, saying she had been paid 300,000 baht to transport the drugs from Chiang Mai to Hat Yai, and that she completed the same trip on two previous occasions.

Too bad they could not have let her continue to the destination and then see what transpired, using a tracking device. Maybe they might have caught a bigger player than the mule with the nice Camry ?

300,000bht divided by 25years = 12000bht

Considering she's going to get a large bowl of rice porridge 25 yrs. seems about right.

12,000 bht a year, triple it to take into consideration her extra haulage dividends, she is going to be a 75 yr old woman before she gets out. By which time her 900,000 bht will just about buy her a bowl of rice porridge.

The irony is staggering.

But if they did that the trail would lead back to police officers, local government officials and wealthy, influential businessmen.
