Thai po­lice make huge drug haul linked to Laos sus­pect

Kuwait Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

BANGKOK: Thai po­lice yes­ter­day an­nounced the seizure of drugs worth $30 mil­lion, in­clud­ing seven mil­lion metham­phetamine tablets, “ice” and liq­uid ke­tamine, from houses around Bangkok linked to an al­leged Lao­tian drug lord. Nine Thais were ar­rested in the ma­jor two-day op­er­a­tion, which turned up 60 kilo­grams of crys­tal metham­phetamine-known as “ice”-and thou­sands of bot­tles of liq­uid ke­tamine. When smoked, “ice” gives a stronger high than the pill ver­sion of meth-which is known in Thai­land as “yaba” and has also flooded other parts of South­east Asia.
