Following a joint operation from both Thai and Australian authorities a haul of 1.7 million yaba pills and 296 kilograms of methamphetamine were seized from a transnational drug network.
The announcement was made on Tuesday by Chief Sirinya Sitdhichai of the Office of Narcotics Control Board.
The bust resulted in the arrest of four Thai suspects, Sarayuth Ekmongkolsuk, 28, Adisak Kaengthongthae, 24, Thiwat Klin-obchey, 23, and Preuttichai Chaiyong, 22.
The police suspect the men of bringing drugs down from the North and housing them in Bangkok’s Thon Buri area before disseminating them in Bangkok and nearby areas.
Officers suspect the alleged assailants are working as part of a network that smuggles the narcotics to Australia where there street value is 100 times more than that in Thailand.
During the operation an unnamed Australian restaurant worker was also arrested after he was supposedly hiding crystal meth in a water filter before posting the drugs to Australia.
