A suspect named as “Ms Nuch” was arrested by police on March 17 of this year in possession of 39,600 pills of methamphetamine (ya bah).

Following questioning by police, Ms Nuch admitted she was working as distributor of the drugs for a couple known as Kampol “Thee” and Thanaporn “May”.

Ms Nuch told police that she was hired by Kampol and Thanaporn to receive a parcel containing the drugs and was to then distribute them to their customers in Phuket.
