PHAYAO – Two 19 year old Hmong men have been nabbed in Phayao with 21,800 yaba pills and 58 kilograms of crystal methamphetamine, or “ice”, with a street value of Bt344 million, Provincial Police Region 5 deputy chief Chamnan Ruadrew said yesterday.

The drug runners Krissada Ranares and Natcha Wongma, who were both on a bus at Muang district’s Mae Tam checkpoint yesterday also led to the arrest of two alleged accomplices, a 17-year-old bus conductor and Chiang Rai resident Nipatpong Sutthiwanusakul, 21.

The gang reportedly got the drugs from alleged druglord and Lahu militia leader Yishay, and transported them to Central Thailand twice before, police said.
