Bangkok —

Bang Sue police officers arrested 2 Chinese clothing merchants for allegedly attempting to export heroin to Australia in clothing parcels.

At 8:30 PM, on October 9th, 2023, an investigative team at Bang Sue Police Station, Bangkok, captured 2 Chinese clothing merchants who were identified as Mr. Ka Sin Chan, 28-years-old, and Mr. Chor Lung Lui, 19-years-old. The investigative team also confiscated a kilogram of heroin stashed inside disguised clothing boxes in Chatuchak Plaza, Bangkok.

The investigating police officers had previously received a report from an unidentified transportation officer that the 2 Chinese clothing merchants had asked to ship 18 clothing boxes to Australia.
