Huge drug haul found in mangrove swamps in far south of Thailand

Jun 21, 2021 | 

Daily News reported that Thai authorities including the Marine Police found 1.2 tons of heroin and crystal meth in mangrove swamps in Satun, southern Thailand.

They were in the area of Klong Tammalang and were believed destined for Malaysia. 

The drugs had the logo of the “lion’s foot stamping on the world” brand. 

They were concealed in packets of green and regular tea within plastic containers usually used for fruit. Some containers were floating in the water when retrieved. 

The haul was worth 60 million baht in Thailand but if it reached a third country successfully the value would rocket to half a billion baht.
