Anti-drug police confiscated 32 kilograms of heroin worth 200 million baht in Bangkok yesterday. The drugs were reportedly destined for Melbourne, Australia.
On June 10th at the Customs X-ray and Technology Center, Bangkok Port Customs Office, Mr. Phanthong Loykulnan, spokesman of the Customs Department, announced the results of the seizure of 32 kilograms of heroin, with a value exceeding 200 million baht.
The drugs were concealed inside boxes of unreported popular brand adhesive pain relief patches. The seizure took place at the Bangkok Port area on June 9th, as the drugs were about to be exported to Melbourne, Australia.
According to Mr. Phanthong, he admired the efforts of the law enforcement officers involved in the operation, as the drugs were cleverly concealed in tightly wrapped packages.
Out of a total of 50 crates, only 5 crates were discovered with drugs during the initial inspection. Without thorough attention to detail and the help of X-ray technology, it would have been difficult for the officers to uncover the drugs, Mr. Phanthong said.
