Mexican drug cartels eyeing 'Thai market'

HAWAII: Mexican drug syndicates are trafficking methamphetamine into Thailand and other Asian countries, according to Earl Hampton, deputy director of the United States' Joint Interagency Task Force West (JIATFW).

Citing reports from US anti-drugs authorities, Mr Hampton said Asian countries are vulnerable to trafficking of meth produced by Mexican cartels.

The Mexican-manufactured drug is similar to the meth produced by drug labs along the Thai-Myanmar border, as both use the same precursor chemicals, he said, adding that Myanmar's United Wa State Army continues to produce and smuggle the drug into Thailand.

Briefing Thai reporters at the US Indo-Pacific Command in Hawaii, Mr Hampton said Thailand remains both a market and a transit point for drug traffickers.

Mr Hampton said the JIATFW, whose mission is to combat drug-related organised crime in the Indo-Asia Pacific, is working closely with Thai police and civilian agencies to stamp out use of precursor chemicals and synthetic drugs.

However, despite Mr Hampton's warning, the Thai Narcotics Suppression Bureau says initial checks found no evidence that Mexican cartels are smuggling drugs into Thailand.

Narcotics Suppression Bureau chief Chinnapat Sarasin insisted smuggling drugs from Mexico would be uneconomical given there were existing sites for cheap production of narcotics on Thailand's border.

"I think Mexican drugs are not a worry compared with meth smuggled from neighboring countries," he said, adding this was a chronic problem.

Meanwhile, police on Wednesday announced the arrest of three suspects in two anti-drug missions. Among them was Malaysian national Magesh Muniandy, who allegedly smuggled nearly 100,000 sedative-like Nimetazepam pills into Thailand.

Mr Muniandy was nabbed while allegedly delivering the drugs to Songkhla's Hat Yai district. Investigators believe the drugs, which are usually sold as an ecstasy (MDMA) substitute, are being "trial marketed" here.

Police say they also intercepted a Khon Kaen village head along with his accomplice at a petrol station in Udon Thani's Kumphawapi district, as the duo were trying to smuggle 300 kilogrammes of marijuana into the country. The suspects admitted the cannabis was for clients in Bangkok and neighboring provinces, officers said.

  5. Sicaro006 remember when los jefes dropped us from a plane into a area controlled by the Ms-13. All they gave us was 2 hand guns and a pocket knife. We disarmed 78 of their most skilled men. We let them live. But we took their small toe as a reminder. Of why they changed their lives. Los jefes made a party for us. When we got back nothing but 22 year old virgins and buchanan's del 18. Don't forget the triple lavada. Those were the days

  7. Sad indictment,i truly hope they do not get into any other country.
    Mexico the makers and purveyors of drug smuggling,why do we not address the issue of mexican manufacturing of nearly every popular drug then turning around and blaming everyone else for its criminality?

  8. Whomever and wherever people are from,going to another country to peddle drugs,be prepared to face their laws.
    Wait and see the outrage if any mexicans are caught in Thailand,remember Malaysia?It was the poor mexican guys were duped,they were poor,they were used,they thought they were getting a job,they had terrible upbringings,abused blah blah blah.Political correctness scares people from telling the truth and consequently the truth is hidden.Sad world we live in

  12. Prostitution is big in Thailand, the last thing they need is cheap DRUGS like meth but I'm sure Chinese already have that market.. But if Mexicans get involved they would flood it making the drug cheaper

  13. US lawman trying to blame Mexicans of potentially/possibly/maybe trafficking meth in another country. He figures because some government chump says it and the hungry foreign press publicize it will make it true. Puras mamadas de los entrometidos

  15. I call bullshit !!! Asian meth and Mex meth are two completely different animals .Asian cooks are meticulous and closer to being and having degrees in chemistry their purity is un rivaled but in Mex you have uneducated poor people with no respect for the people who do the drug mixing chemicals in the woods and they dont care what they put in it or how it turns out they could care less . And thats how it is thats why they can sell it for 1000 a pound in so cal cause its basically crap with who knows whats in it . The most sought after is the North Korean Blue that the N Korean government produced a little while back it goes for about 100 us per 1/10th of a gram if you can find it rumor is the Chineese Tongs acquired most of it and keep it for themselves .

    1. Any color in meth is an impurity. That's just a scientific fact! I have no doubt that cartels have hired real chemist to do their work. Sure you have those people working on the woods with little knowledge but I've seen Mexican meth and it's huge clear crystals.
