KANCHANBURI: Two women were caught with 40,000 methamphetamine pills at a checkpoint in Thong Pha Phum district on Tuesday night, police said.

About 8pm, police at the three-way intersection near Moo 1 village in tambon Tha Khanun intercepted a Toyota Yaris for a search after being alerted by police at another checkpoint in tambon Nong Lu.

They found 40,000 meth pills in a suitcase inside the small car.

The two women in the car were detained. They were identified as Supatra Makaew, 30, and Chutikan Poorahong, 31, both from Muang district of Kanchanaburi.
