76 kgs Of Heroin seized in NONG KHAI...

Post by 747man » December 2, 2017, 10:18 am

A combined government force seized 76 kilogrammes of heroin with a street value of about 100 million baht following a brief shooting in Sang Khom district of Nong Khai province early on Friday (Dec 1), Provincial Police Region 4 deputy commissioner Pol Maj Gen Chalong Pakpinyo said.

Pol Maj Gen Chalong said a team of provincial and narcotic suppression police and soldiers from Surasak Montree Force were deployed on the bank of the Mekong River near Ban Huay Luang Son in Tambon Ban Muang of Nong Khai’s Sang Khon district on receiving a tip-off from informants that a quantity of drug would be smuggled across the river to this spot.

At about 3am, ten men were seen arriving on a boat and went ashore, each carrying a bag. When the authorities showed up and told them to stop for a search, some of them opened fire briefly at them while fleeing. The men then abandoned their bags and disappeared into a nearby forest.

So ten bad guys and at least twice as many good guys have a shoot out and NOBODY got shot?

...or caught?

I guess the Mexicans weren't involved.

Shame they didn't get the other 20 bad guys that followed with the 100kg load.

Its been released from the Police Forensic unit, ready to be re-birthed in smaller packets, ready for resale.

Me thinks this was the sacrificial bust they had to have, as 200 KG crossed the river 5 km upstream

Do you actually know this has happened, or is it conjecture, or fantasy?
