Police say that he’s confessed that the drug belongs to him, which he took from another man via an anonymous person from the drug dealer network. The anonymous man would leave a card box on the side road with the drugs inside and when the drugs were picked up he would transfer money to the account of the man who sold them to him.

He says that he received 300 Baht per gram for commission.

The value of the belongings as well as drugs from the two, including 1.39 grams of methamphetamine, 307 amphetamine pills, one Samsung Hero mobile phone, one VIVO mobile phone, a Yamaha motorcycle, a Honda City car, are worth 5 million Baht in total.
