Pair arrested in Bangkok with 800,000 meth pills
Two men have been charged with trying to deliver 800,000 methamphetamine pills to locations around Bangkok.
Metropolitan Police deputy commissioner Pol Maj Gen Ruechakorn Jarajewut on Tuesday announced that Puttikorn Amnuaychai, 30, and Thirawat Jaidee, 25, had been arrested on the basis of a tip-off.
Police stopped them on Monday just as they were leaving their rented house in the Phassorn housing estate in Saimai district. The house had been under surveillance.
Puttikorn told reporters he obtained the drugs from someone using the Line app ID “Lukkai KFC”, whom he got to know last August.
He said “Lukkai” told him and Thirawat to pick up the drugs in Nakhon Nayok early Sunday and keep them at the house, which they’d rented for the purpose in November.
The suspects said they’d delivered drug shipments for the same man four times and had each been paid Bt100,000 thus far.
