BANGKOK, March 14 (Bernama) -- The three suspects behind last Sunday's attempt to smuggle 304kg of heroin into Malaysia through Narathiwat in southern Thailand have admitted to their alleged "success" in smuggling large amount of drugs into the neighbouring country.
According to a source in Thailand's Narcotics Suppression Bureau (NSB), the three male suspects made the admission during interrogation sessions with police's investigators.
"The suspects told investigators, they have been successful in smuggling similar amount of drugs (into Malaysia), about six or seven times before this," he told Bernama, without revealing his identity because he was not authorised to issue statements to the media.
The three suspects from Pattani were arrested after the authorities stopped their Malaysia-bound lorry at a checkpoint in Narathiwat and discovered the high-quality heroin, which the police believe would be shipped to a third destination upon reaching the neighbouring country.
Two of the suspects were nabbed inside the lorry, while another one was picked up in follow up operations.....
