Seaport authorities detained Ms. Supawaddee Iem-urai, 26 after 210 packages labeled tea were found hidden in 19 sofas destined for Malaysia. Each package contained one kilogram of crystal meth.

The sofa beds packaged in wooden crates were seized at Klong Toey Port in Khlong Toei District of Bangkok.
