The ‘trash’ is valued at 150 million baht.
When: September 19th, 2020
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.
