Police in Nakhon Ratchasima on Monday arrested a woman and her daughter-in-law on drug charges and seized two kilogrammes of crystal methamphetamine worth about five million baht in street value.
Umporn Johrasar, 46, and Tipgaysorn Suuktiem, 23, were arrested at a gas station in Pak Chong district after a sting operation that also netted three cell phones. The driver of the vehicle they were in was able to escape, police said.
Mrs Umporn told investigators that her husband and her son are in Ubon Ratchathani prison on drug convictions. Her three grandchildren, aged 2, 8 and 10 years old, will be left without a guardian if she and Ms Tipgaysorn are also convicted, she said.
