Police have seized illegal drugs with a street value of about 400 million baht and arrested a drug suspect in Bangkok, Deputy Prime Minister Chalerm Yubamrung said on Thursday.
Mr Chalerm announced the drug bust at a press conference in Bangkok. He was accompanied by national police chief Priewpan Damapong and Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Winai Thongsong.
Pol Lt Gen Winai said the suspect, Pathomthat Jirarattanawong, 35, told investigators that the main drug dealer was Supawat Konthong, 40, who had opened a used car shop in Bangkok as a front to his business. Mr Supawat would store the drugs in a house in Pathum Thani's Lam Luk Ka district, according to Mr Pathomthat.
