CHIANG MAI – Six kilograms of crystal meth have been seized and another six dealers taken down in a police swoop on a major drug ring based in the Northern Thailand. The operation followed the earlier arrest of five members of the same gang.

Justice Minister Paiboon Koomchaya said the success followed an exchange of information between Myanmar and Thailand under the Safe Mekong operation.

Narong Rattananukul, secretary-general of the Office of the Narcotics Control Board, said this ring worked through several gangs to distribute the drugs, with a clear division of work between providers, transporters, distributors and those who control the finance.

Five members of this ring were arrested on Sept 24 with 2.3 million yaba pills, 42kgs of crystal meth (ya ice) and 36kgs of heroin in Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai.

This ring regularly couriered drugs from the North to sell in Bangkok and vicinity, Mr Narong said. He alleged the men had sourced and smuggled the drugs from the border to a storage place in Chiang Mai. They then packed and sent the drugs via general transport companies to Greater Bangkok.

The authorities have also seized assets and money from the men.
