CHIANG MAI:-- Police have arrested a man after more than 21 kilograms of heroin worth an estimated 100 million baht was seized in the Mae Rim and Sansai districts of Chiang Mai.

On Tuesday, Pol. Lt. Gen. Thanitsak Theerasawas confirmed the arrest of Mr. Pattanapong Chanpood, 30, from Surat Thani province following an ongoing police investigation into narcotic gangs operating in northern Thailand.

Mr Pattanapong had been known to police for some time when they received a report that he had hired a forklift truck which he was planning to use to remove his broken down car from the side of the road close to the Holiday Resort in Sansai, Chiang Mai.

Upon searching the broken down Nissan Teana, officers found 14.350 kilograms of heroin inside 41 separate bags stashed inside the back bumper.

While officers were searching the vehicle they received more information that Pattanapong was about board a flight from Chiang Mai airport to Surat Thani and was promptly detained by officers at the airport.

Officers later searched a house in Mae Rim where Pattapong was known to have stayed and discovered a further 6.6 kilograms of heroin inside 19 bags hidden in the ceiling of the 3rd floor.

Pattapong allegedly confessed to the police this is the second time he has done this and he has no idea what is inside the white bags being hidden in the car. As far as he knows he is just told to hire a fork lift truck and transport the car to Samut Sakorn where he is then paid 250,000 Baht per trip.

Despite Pattanpong’s confession, police are working to identify others involved in what they say is a large scale narcotics operation. Pol. Maj. Gen. Montree Samboonyanon reportedly told the reporters the heroin was produced in the area populated by the Muser tribe along Thai border.

Karma, that the car broke down, surely they mean tow truck,

not fork lift, to remove the car from the side of the road.

@shirtless

Who are you to judge?

Maybe you condone it but most right thinking people do not. Try it in Malaysia and see how far you get. Have you not considered the untold misery drugs cause not just to the user but the families of users and the public?

An off topic post of a conspiratorial nature has been removed, this is not about Afghanistan, the CIA or the USA.

Claims he didn't know what was in the bags but was being paid 250,000 to deliver them. Ok then.

Let me guess it wasn't rice. The RTP should take him to the safe house, and obtain the whereabouts of his paymaster, and move up the line to the mafia top. Which won't happen, naturally.
