Security officers in Thailand arrested two men from Iran who were attempting to smuggle crystal meth pellets into the county. The two men had a total of 139 pellets filled with crystal meth that they swallowed in order to bring into Thailand. If the crystal meth was sold on the streets, officials say that the drugs would have been worth $113,000 (3.5 Million Thai Baht.)
The leader of the two men told police that he was to be paid between $1,943 to $2,923 (60,000 to 90,000 Thai Baht) by drug traffickers to bring in the drugs.
