Pol Maj Gen Prinya Chansuriya, deputy chief of the Metropolitan Police Bureau, said on Monday police identified the suspects as Nirut Loeithaisong and Orawan Wongboonpatra, both 26.
Pol Maj Gen Prinya said an undercover agent was sent to buy drugs in Dusit district after police received a tip-off that dealers were working the area.
Mr Nirut and Mrs Orawan then showed up to meet them with a handbag. Police who had staked out the meeting seized the pair and found 124 speed pills hidden inside two sanitary pads in the handbag.
Mrs Orawan allegedly confessed she was hired for 5,000 baht by a man in prison on drug charges to deliver the pills.
She told police it was the first time she had done anything like this, but she was out of work and needed money to care for her children.
Both suspects were charged with possessing drugs with intent to sell.
