Bangkok teen arrested with 8 million pills, 37kg of ‘ice’
A 17-year-old boy was arrested on Wednesday night in Bangkok with 8.67 million methamphetamine pills, 37 kilograms of crystal meth, 2,822 ecstasy pills, 38 kilograms of crystal ketamine and 569 bottles of ketamine solution.
The arrest was announced at a press conference at the Royal Thai Police headquarters by Pol General Chalermkiart Sriworakhan.
Chalermkiart said police staked out an apartment on Soi Lard Pra Khao 37 in Lard Prao district at 10pm after learning that a major drug ring had been storing drugs there to distribute in Bang Khen, Chatuchak, Lard Prao, Khan Na Yao and Min Buri districts.
The teen was arrested after police saw him walking out while carrying a bag. Some drugs were found in the bag and the rest later discovered in his room.
Chalermkiart said the drug had been smuggled from the North for distributing in entertainment venues in the Bangkok districts.
