The Hat Yai Railway Police arrested a man carrying 12,000 Yaba pills on the train traveling from Bangkok to Yala Province. Amad 29 years old was caught on 9 December 2019 with 6 packs of pills that turned out to be the popular drug “Yaba”. He was traveling on the fast train No.41 and was sitting in seat No.44. At first, the police did not specifically suspect what he was carrying on the train but his reaction to a normal security check tipped himself off to the officials.
While the railway police were running a regular security check throughout the train while the train was traveling to the Hat Yai Railway Station. Amad started shaking and was constantly moving around the train when an officer walked by. This made one of the officers start to suspect Amad’s actions leading to the search of the suspect’s belongings. Amad was carrying a blue backpack that was placed on the shelf above his seat. When the police opened inside there were 3 packs of Yaba pills in the backpack.
The police noticed that the private area in his pants was unusually large so they searched him and found 1 pack of pills in his underwear. 2 more packs of pills were found in the suspect’s shoes placed under his seat wrapped in a plastic bag, 1 pack from each shoe. Amad turned pale after the discovery and had his head hanging low for the rest of the day.
Amad stated that he was hired to move Yaba pills from Bangkok to an agent in Yala Province in exchange for 15,000 THB. He claims that this is his first time doing so after finding a new job at a restaurant in Bangkok that introduced him to a drug agent in the big city.
