Troops and police raided the house of a hilltribe man in Chiang Mai’s Mae Chaem district yesterday morning and found 3,940 methamphetamine pills and 1.7 kilograms of raw opium.


The authorities arrested the house owner, Laoyi Saengsornthaweesak, 75, for allegedly having drugs in his possession with intent to sell. Authorities also found a homemade pistol and some ammunition at the house. The old man said he bought the drug from hilltribe people in another village in Chiang Mai’s Galyani Vadhana district for reselling. The drug was shipped to his house every 10 days, he said.
