Teenager arrested for smuggling 100,000 meth pills from Myanmar border


Troops arrested a 17-year-old in Chiang Rai’s Mae Fa district late on Friday night while he was allegedly trying to smuggle 100,000 methamphetamine pills into the country on a motorcycle.

The teenager, a resident of Tambon Thirdthai in Mae Fa Lung, was arrested at 10.30pm at a Myanmar border checkpoint in Mueang Song village in Tambon Thirdthai.
The troops from Pha Mueang Taskforce said they spotted a motorcycle and, when they signaled it to stop, it tried to make a u-turn. The troops charged towards the motorbike and captured the rider, but the pillion passenger managed to flee into the forest.
The drug was found in a bag at the front of the motorcycle. Each pill carried the “wy” mark, authorities said.
