750,000 Yaba Tabs Nabbed at Southern Border

Can somebody teach this guy how to point?

A poor effort. Couldn’t make it an even million tabs!

When: November 27th, 2020

Where: Pasemas subdistrict, Su-ngai Kolok district, Narathiwat province

Perpetrators: Mr. Ameen Suta, 28

Victims: Addicts, a pissed off drug boss

What: Mr. Suta was arrested today in his pick-up truck where police also found 750,000 yaba tabs. The red pills were intended for export to neighboring countries, from Thailand’s tumultuous southern border into Malaysia and beyond. Mr. Suta confessed without resistance or any further incident.

My take: This was a small score, but underlines the point that Thailand fights yaba smuggling on every front. From the border in the north with Burma, the northeast with Laos and Cambodia, and in the south with Malaysia, Thai army and law enforcement have their hands full.
