Hunt on for drug runners disguised as ambulance crew

 

POLICE are chasing drug traffickers disguised as ambulance paramedics who fled to Bangkok in their fake ambulance after a shootout in Saraburi province earlier today (June 5), Sanook.com said.

Found after an inter-provincial road chase was the fake ambulance, carrying a Bangkok licence plate with no plate at the rear, abandoned in Soi Suwinthawong 44, Min Buri district, with drugs discarded near ​​Wat Saensuk in the same district.

The shootout occurred after Saraburi provincial police got a tip-off that a drug network in the upper northeastern region is going to transport a large amount of narcotics to the central region in a rescue vehicle.

Saraburi police were on the look out for a vehicle that fitted this description and upon stopping this fake ambulance a shootout occurred with the drug runners managing to flee.

Police are continuing to hunt for them in Bangkok and its vicinity.
