NAKHON PHANOM — Police have seized methamphetamine pills worth millions of baht hidden in a cooking gas cylinder shipped from Laos, in what they believe is a new way of drug smuggling into Thailand. 

Border patrol police were tipped off that a foreign drug gang would deliver speed pills across the Mekong river from Laos to Ban Kham Tao in tambon Kham Tao of Muang Nakhon Phanom district on Saturday night, Thai Rath online reported.

A surveillance team was set up at the area to make the arrest, Pol Lt Col Tawee Sarakarn, commander of the 236nd Border Patrol Police Unit, told a news conference Sunday.
