A team of Tha Chatchai Police officers led by Deputy Chief Lt Col Nikon Chutong arrested Prasorn Kaewpradit, from Songkhla, at the Phuket Checkpoint during a routine search of a bus heading from Hat Yai to Phuket.

Prasorn Kaewpradit from the Thungwang district of Songkhla, was acting suspiciously during the check and was asked to leave the bus so he could be searched inside the police building.

Upon conducting the search police discovered the drugs in Prasorn’s underwear.

Mules, mules
I am waiting to read about the factories, producers in Thailand, or the importers and the border customs check points
With long time weekly many drugs mules arrested. The thai government by now should come up with higher level arrest in this 'drugs trees'

If no arrest take place at higher criminal levels than there are 2 conclusions
The RTP is lazy, or they not want.
