Drug smug­glers no match for cops

The Citizen (KZN) - - World - Bangkok

– Two Tai­wanese men have been caught try­ing to smug­gle 15kg of heroin in pack­ets of in­stant noo­dles from a Bangkok air­port, Thai po­lice said.

The pair were try­ing to re­turn to Tai­wan when they were ar­rested at Su­varn­ab­humi Air­port af­ter a tip-off, po­lice said, with­out say­ing where the heroin orig­i­nated.

The law­less bor­der ar­eas of Myan­mar, Thai­land and Laos have for decades been a hub for heroin. – AFP
