Police have arrested four men and confiscated 860,000 methamphetamine pills, or yaba, worth an estimated 200 million baht on the street, in Pathum Thani’s Lat Lum Kaeo district, the National Command Centre for Drugs (NCCD) said on Friday.
Chai Inchaikaew, 40, Worawut Kumsaeng, 40, Pairoj Wipoppat, 39, and Charupat Purichawongpat, 37, were apprehended on Thursday after authorities were tipped off that illicit drugs from the North were being smuggled through the area in a six-wheel truck to clients in the Central region.
NCCD director Chalerm Yubamrung said police found the yaba pills in a six-wheeler parked on the Western Outer Ring Road. Mr Chai, Mr Worawut, and Mr Pairoj were inside the vehicle and were taken into custody.
