Police seized marijuana with an estimated street value of 30 million baht hidden in a pickup truck following a high-speed chase in Chumphon’s Tha Sae district on Wednesday. 

Police acted on a tip-off that that a drug gang would transport a large quantity of marijuana to the lower South through the southern province, using a Nakhon Pathom-registered pickup truck this morning, said Chareonpong Kantilo, an investigation inspector at Highway Police Station 4, Division 2. 

Police then carried out patrols and set up checkpoints at spots thought to be along the smugglers'  route. A  suspicious vehicle was spotted travelling at high speed on Petchakasem Road in tambon Tha Sae and its  driver, who accompanied by two other men, refused to pull over at a checkpoint.
