BANGKOK: CRIME: NIGERIAN MAN AND THAI WOMAN NABBED IN BANGKOK WITH SOME KILOS OF...


Sawaros Nathawil 34 was arrested on Thursday while John C. Anike 24 was arrested on Friday June 3rd.
8.5 kg of crystal methamphetamine hińŹden female handbags was seized in total.
The Thai lady was arrested when she
showed up to receive some parcels containing 35 female handbags stuffed with crystal methamphetamine sent from China.

Her arrest came after the NSB received information from Chinese authorities in Guangzhou that they had arrested an African drug trafficking gang and seized an invoice detailing goods sent from Guanzhou to Thailand by the suspects, said Pol Lt Gen Rewat.
Authorities then extended the investigation that led to the arrest of the Nigerian suspect at a rented room in Lat Krabang on Friday. A pack of crystal meth was found stuffed in a handbag found in his room. Several handbags similar to those found in the seized parcels were also found in his room.
Pol Lt Gen Rewat said he believed the two suspects might be network members of the Nigerian gang caught in China. The seized drugs were destined for sale in Bangkok and Pattaya, particularly among wealthy drug addicts, he added.

The duo have been charged with colluding in smuggling drugs into the country with intent to sell. They were held in police custody for legal action.
