Drug suspect's long journey from China

A Thai woman was arrested along with 1,900 grams of crystal meth worth Bt5 million in street value in the Samae Dam area of Bangkok's Bang Khun Thien district, police said yesterday.

Following a tip-off that a Thai woman would smuggle drugs from China, passing through Hong Kong to Phuket Airport before travelling by bus to Bangkok, police traced suspect Kulisara Mabeemoh, 24, and arrested her on Rama II Road, allegedly with the drugs in her luggage. Kulisara allegedly confessed to police she was hired by a Nigerian man identified only as Paul, whom she befriended at Khao San Road.

Police said 51 Thai women were arrested for drug smuggling in Brazil while another 24 Thai women were nabbed in Peru in the past two or three years.
