Provincial Police explained that that an informant had given them a lead that parcels would be delivered to Phuket by post to be distributed to local dealers on the island.

The officers went to Rawai Post Office, where they found two boxes together containing 12 one-kilo packs of marijuana.

Police did not disclose the names and contact details of the intended recipients or the sender, saying that the details could not be revealed at this stage as the case was still under investigation, that they were now tracking down the people the packages were addressed to, and the people recorded as sending the packages.

The marijuana was seized and taken to Chalong Police Station.

Meanwhile, police in Wichit acting on a tip-off arrested a man yesterday after he received a kilo of marijuana delivered by parcel delivery service Kerry Express.
