Via: The Nation

An Iranian man was arrested in possession of 3,980 grams of crystal methamphetamine worth Bt14 million ($437,500 USD) at Suvarnabhumi Airport the chief of the Royal Thai Customs Department s Investigation and Suppression Bureau Rakop Srisupaart said yesterday.

Customs officials searched suspicious passenger Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, 55, after he arrived from Tehran via Dubai on Wednesday evening and found the drugs hidden in his luggage.

The man reportedly confessed to having transported the drug for Thai dealers on eight previous occasions receiving payment of Bt300,000 each time. (8 x Bt300,000 = $75,000USD).

He said the drugs were distributed in Bangkok’s Nana area and in Pattaya.

He said he had lived in the Pratunam area for three years selling coffee Rakop also reported that the airport s post office detected 2,777 yaba tablets hidden in a package bound for Israel bearing a fake Thai sender’s address.


personal thought:

The embargo must be working; as Ahmadinejad has switched from exporting oil, to exporting crystal meth.
