Big drug bust in Chiang Rai

Police on Tuesday morning seized nearly two million methamphetamine pills and 40 kilogrammes of "ice" and arrested one suspect on a charge of possessing an illegal drug in Phaya Mengrai district of Chiang Rai.

Pol Col Doi Wongphum, chief of Phaya Mengrai police station, said he received a report from an undercover   agent that the dugs would be delivered to clients through a remote area of Phaya Mengrai district this morning.

He led police force to patrol on foot at Ban Huay Nam Lad in tambon Mae Pao and found a group of drug-traffickers.

Police called on them to stop and surrender but they dropped the boxes they were carrying and ran away.

Police searched the area and found a 35 year old person, 1,836,000 speed pills and 40kg of crystal methamphetamine, known as "ice". No details of the arrested suspect were released.

Pol Col Doi called for reinforcements to provide protection when they took the seized drugs back to the police station. He was concerned that the drug traffickers would attack them and try to take back their drugs.
