After receiving a tip-off, the drug suppression team comprising police officers and soldiers, flagged down a suspicious pick-up truck at about 9pm on Thursday.
However, instead of stopping, the truck sped off in the direction of the city’s red-light district. The truck driver was so desperate to get away that he even ignored the gunshots fired as a warning.
Eventually, police managed to block the truck and arrested driver Siwakorn Sirirungwilai, 30, and passenger Chawalit Pakao, 18. They face charges of possessing more than a million pills of methamphetamine with an intention to sell.
Police have launched an investigation to find out who else is involved.
