Parcels packed with ammunition and illicit drugs were intercepted at Songkhla's Hat Yai Post Office yesterday, before they reached their destinations in the deep South.
Security officials seized a total of 51 parcel boxes.
In them were more than 400 kilograms of illicit drugs, 1,500 rounds of ammunition for .22mm guns, 50 .38mm rounds and 100 9mm rounds.
Authorities are now tracking down the senders and intended recipients, who are believed to have links to drug traffickers and insurgents in the three southernmost provinces.
