The suspects fled the scene choosing to give up the drugs and avoid the police. Patrol police from the Tha Kam Police Station suspected the people in the vehicle who were acting suspiciously.

There were 2 main points where drugs were located.

Firstly, police discovered a sack with a distinctive bird logo. Inside were 20 packs of methamphetamine totalling around 40,000 pills.

At the second location officials found a Hyundai H-1 van with a Bangkok number plate parked in front of a cafe. The car keys and a mobile phone were left on the dashboard. In the rear of the vehicle was a large blue sack with 80 packs containing 160,000 pills. To top it off was 2 litre PET bottles filled with boiled Kratom leaves.

Patrol official first located 2 men carrying the first sack with the bird logo by the road. They got scared, jumped into the van and drove away. The van was then found later abandoned in front of the cafe.

Police checked and identified the vehicle was registered to 33 year old Adisorn from Samut Songkhram Province, west of Bangkok, with no criminal record. Adisorn has changed his name and was currently using the name Nattapat.

Police are currently trying to locate the three men for further questioning.
