PHRAE – Royal Thai Police and Members of the military drug task force seized two million methamphetamine pills or ya baa from a passenger van in Den Chai district of Phrae province Sunday morning.

Acting on information from an informant authorities learned that a huge drug haul was to be smuggled by road through the province, the force set up a road block at Samyaek Den Chai to search for suspicious cars that passed through the spot.

A bronze Toyota Grant Hyatt van with a military license plate and a sticker of the 7th infantry division attached to the front windshield arrived at the checkpoint and the officers there signaled the driver to stop but he instead sped away prompting a road chase.

The pursuing policemen then fired on the wheels of the van forcing it to skid out of the road.  Then the driver jumped out and escaped.

Police and the military later searched the van and found inside about 20 bags packed with ya baa.  Two million pills were counted.

The van was found to be rented by a conscript identified as Vichai Rangsirikhet.  The licence plate was also a fake.
