Two teenagers arrested over allegedly smuggling more than 4.4 million meth pills and 320 marijuana sticks in Bangkok

Bangkok –

Two Thai teenagers, whose ages are between 16 to 17 years old, were arrested after allegedly smuggling 4.4 million methamphetamine pills and 320 sticks of marijuana to deliver to a customer in the Sai Mai district of Bangkok.

Police officers from the Provincial Police Division 1 have announced the case at a press briefing this morning, November 2, following the arrest of two young men who were found possessing the drugs while they were driving from Pathumthani province to deliver the illegal packages to customers. Their names were withheld due to being juveniles.

The arrest was conducted after the police authorities received a tip-off from a concerned citizen stating that there would be illegal activity involving meth and cannabis in the Sai Mai area of Bangkok. A group of police officials then followed a suspicious vehicle which was reportedly driving from upper Thailand after it was allegedly discovered carrying huge bags of illegal drugs.

The pickup truck in question was stopped by the authorities just before reaching Phahonyothin road. Two boys in the vehicle reportedly attempted to escape the arrest but eventually were caught and were taken to Sai Mai police station.

Approximately 4,400,000 million methamphetamine pills and 8 sacks containing 320 cannabis sticks were found inside the trunk and confiscated by the authorities.

The duo allegedly confessed that they were hired for a decent amount of money to carry and deliver the drugs to an unidentified customer in Bangkok.

They were initially charged for possessing and distributing multiple drugs and will be transferred to the Bureau of Narcotics for legal proceedings. Police say they are looking into the person who hired the teenagers.
