500 kilograms of ice was seized and several people were arrested following a raid on a hotel in Mae Rim this morning, Nov. 4.
The raid led by Chiang Mai Provincial District 5 police took place at the Little Inn Hotel in Moo 5 Din Kaew, interestingly not far from the Chiang Mai Central Prison.
Three men were arrested in two different rooms while the ice, valued at around 500 million baht, was found in the back of an MG car parked in the grounds of the hotel.
According to police, a drug trafficking group had arranged for the ice to be picked up in Mae Taeng to be transported to Nakhon Sri Thammarat Province and then further on to Hat Yai in the south.
Six other men are also wanted over the drug smuggling operation. A press conference with further details of the operation is scheduled for tomorrow.
