Five men of Hmong origin were arrested on Wednesday night with 500,000 methamphetamine pills in their possession after narcotics suppression police gave chase to four pick-up trucks on Highway 11 in Tha Tako district of Nakhon Sawan.
Pol Gen Priewpan Damapong, the national police chief, said the seizure followed a tip-off that a drug gang would transport the drugs from Chiang Rai, possibly destined for Bangkok.
