A 41 year old from Nakhon Si Thammarat, Yuthana Ponsud, has been arrested yesterday (March 14) at the Phuket Gateway at Thachatchai Checkpoint while carrying 1,957 amphetamine pills with a street value of 350,000 baht, to Phuket.

The police at the gateway found him during a routine search of a Trang to Phuket bus. He seemed suspicious so police asked to check his bag and found the drugs inside.

He told the police that he received the drug from a man named ‘Song’, who paid him 10,000 baht to carry the drugs to Phuket. Song placed the drug in a rubber plantation at Huay Yod District, Trang where Yuthana picked them up before getting on the bus.
