During a raid on a house in Bang Pa-in district, seven members of a major drug network were arrested with more than 7 million speed pills, 300kg of crystal methamphetamine, and 184kg of ketamine.
The Narcotics Suppression Bureau raided the house in tambon Chiang Rak Noi recently.
During the search, large quantities of speed pills and other drugs were found, and seven people were arrested, according to the arresting team led by Pol Lt Gen Mantri Yimyaem, commissioner of the NSB.
The house was seized with 7.1 million speed pills, 184kg of ketamine, 300kg of crystal methamphetamine, and four vehicles.
The seven suspects consisted of six men — Siwa Somseesai, 30; Natthaphol Singwisut, 29; Sunthorn Yongyut, 26; Natthayot Wongphuttha, 20; Weerayut Seethao, 20; and Thiwanon Innok, 20; and a woman — Ms. Ratchada Soda, 20.
Three drug suspects were arrested in Bangkok after 40,000 speed pills were seized from them. Later, the officers extended the search and seized 1 million more speed pills from the gang.
The extended police investigation found that the drug network kept large quantities of illicit drugs at a house in the Bang Pa-in district of Ayutthaya, and that the network had more members.
Narcotics were stored in rented houses in several areas, and pickup trucks loaded with crops, especially corn, were used to move illicit drugs under them.
