Customs officers searched luggage belonging to Buachompoo Pattanapiyawat, and discovered the drugs hidden in sachets of dry cereal drink.

The ya ice weighed in at 2.5 kg, and had a street value of about B7 million.

Officers became suspicious after noting that Buachompoo had taken a very short trip to China, flying yesterday to Guangzhou and then taking a bus to Hong Kong before boarding a Dragon Air flight, arriving back in Phuket at 4:30pm

She was charged with smuggling and with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell, and was taken to the lock-up in Tah Chat Chai police station for further questioning.
