A 30-year-old Nigerian man identified as Frank Uzoma was caught with 2 kilos of crystal meth in the Ram Intra area of northern Bangkok on Sunday, September 3rd.
Several police districts were working on busting the Nigerian drug gang following a tip from an informer that a shipment of "ice" was being readied for sending to Indonesia and Turkey.
Officers from Thung Song Hong, Bang Khan and Tao Poon laid in wait near the end of Khu Bon Soi 6 on Sunday and saw a Honda car being driven to and fro in the soi.
They blocked any escape route for the car and went in to make an arrest.
However, the suspect managed to ditch the car and run off. He was chased down by the cops and eventually caught. Upon interrogation, Uzoma admitted that he was stuffing the drugs in water filters for export.
He also revealed that he was working for a Nigerian friend who paid him US 2,000 dollars a time. Uzoma was paraded before the press and remanded in custody ahead of processing by Kanayao police.
