Suthisarn police on Tuesday arrested three Thai and two Malaysian men with 3kg of ketamine and 400 ecstasy pills with a street value of more than 20 million baht, Metropolitan Police Bureau chief Kamronwit Thoopkrachang said at a press conference on Wednesday.
Pol Lt-Gen Kamronwit said the action was a follow-up to a recent raid on a drug production plant in Phasi Charoen district.
Following a tip-off, Suthisarn police arrested the three Thai men - Sompop Kanphet, 29, Anont Panchalong, 25, and Suthikiat Sukrungruang, 28 - in front of a hotel on Ratchadapisek road in Din Daeng area.
The police subsequently raided a room on the 12th floor of the hotel and arrested the two Malaysians - See Bon Sui, 49, and Wian Al Sai, 42, with 3kg of ketamine and 400 ecstasy pills in their possession.
Chawat Chuthesa, of the Office of the Narcotics Control Board, said the drugs were brought into the country from Malaysia by the two Malaysian men.
The Thais received an order from a prison inmate to take delivery of the drugs from the two Malaysian couriers for further distribution.
