One man and 1,104,000 methamphetamine pills are in police hands following a sting operation in Muang Lampang on Saturday (July 13).

 

Pol Lt Gen Montri Sumboonnanont, commissioner of Provincial Police Region 5, presided at a press conference on Monday morning to describe how undercover officers arranged to purchase a much smaller quantity from Sarayuth Rattanadilok, 34.

 

They agreed to meet on the road connecting Hang Chat and Muang districts at 10pm on Saturday and Sarayuth allegedly arrived with 4,000 pills. 

 

Following the arrest, Sarayuth then led police to a forest in the tambon of Phra Baht where another 1,100,000 pills were stashed. 

 

Montri said Sarayuth claimed to be only a mule for a drug-trafficking gang that gave him delivery instructions by phone.
