Police on Saturday (Aug 12) seized 980 bars of compressed marijuana, weighing about 980 kilogramme in total, in a search of a van which had been abandoned in a bush in Muang district of Sakon Nakhon province.

 

Villagers of Ban Don Tum in Tambon Ngiu Don on Friday night informed Muang district police after they found a black Hyundai H1 van abandoned in a bush behind a fertiliser plant.  The van’s doors were locked.

 

Pol Col Kanapot Panomchai of Muang Sakon Nakhon police station said police got a tip-off that trafficking gang would enter Tha Rae district last night (Aug 11), so, checkpoints had been set up to inspect suspicious vehicles.

 

Officers at a checkpoint stopped the black Hyundai van for a search, but the driver sped away until villagers informed the police that they found the car abandoned at the scene, he said.

All these big busts seem to be as a result of a 'tip-off'. Who on earth is doing the 'tipping-off', and why? The gangs transporting and selling the stuff must have security like a sieve. Or loose tongues after a bottle or two of Lao Khao. I can't imagine that the BiB have a particularly efficient network of undercover agents, somehow.

Childish ineptitude is abundant in every level of Thai society, all the way from the peasants to the PM. Why should drug smugglers be any different?

Hope it was within the weight limits for the van otherwise they might be in serious trouble.
