Authorities in Southeastern Thailand have seized 100 kilo’s of crystal meth that was found washed ashore on two beaches. In Trat, 19 packs of crystal meth was found on Koh Mak beach and another 81 packs on Koh Kut beach.

Niyom Termsrisuk, secretary-general of the Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) said each pack weighed about one kilogram. All of the packs were waterproof, the Bangkok Post report.

The ONCB is now working with narcotics suppression police to find out where the drugs were from. It was suspected that they might have been thrown into the sea by smugglers travelling Thailand’s waters.

Mr Niyom has urged local residents who spot suspicious packages floating ashore to alert local police. He also said cash rewards would be given to those who provided clues.

The Crystal meth discovery capped a busy week for anti-drug enforcement activities. The beach seizure followed the arrest of two major drug suspects and seizure of 5.5 million meth pills in Ayutthaya.
