200kg of meth found in trash bags

200 kilograms of meth were found in Pattaya, Bang Lamung district.
Street view a stone’s throw from where the trash was found.

The ‘trash’ is valued at 150 million baht.

When: September 19th, 2020

Where: Pattaya, Bang Lamung district

Perpetrator: An unlucky, unknown drug cartel

Victims: Meth-heads that can’t score

What: A routine crime prevention patrol uncovered black trash bags in the bushes that held the ice. 200kg of crystal meth were stashed in the bags, with a street value of 150 million baht.

My take: This was either bad luck, bad timing, or somebody snitched. Or there’s another possibility: this is a misdirection. Nobody leaves 150 million baht of ice laying around like that. This is a real head scratcher. Either some low level drug runner’s in some big doo-doo for being careless, or there’s much more to the story.

An odd coincidence, the meth bags were found in the same district where masked gunmen robbed the mansion in Pattaya.
