The Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) is mobilising officials and villagers to help intercept a drug trafficking gang after an intelligence report found about 500 million methamphetamine pills may be smuggled into northeastern Thailand. 

The report, which has been passed on to Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung, who is in charge of overseeing drug suppression, has prompted tighter surveillance in the northeastern border provinces of Mukdahan, Nakhon Phanom, Amnat Charoen and Ubon Ratchathani, ONCB region 3 director Witthawan Sunthonkhachit said.

Mr Witthawan said Pol Capt Chalerm was told around 500 million speed pills were waiting to be smuggled across the border in the Northeast.
