Police had arrested two drug couriers on charges of possessing illegal drugs and seized 780,000 methamphetamine tablets, a Bangkok press conference was told on Tuesday.
Chatchavarn Methakulphiphat and Chaimontri Romphanatham were apprehended at a check-point in Phayuha Kiri district of Nakhon Sawan province about 4pm on Monday.
The drugs were found concealed inside the roof of their pickup truck.
If sold in central region street markets the pills would cost more than 200 million baht.

The details were announced by Justice Minister Pirapan Salirathavibhaga and acting police chief Pol Gen Pateep Tancharoen.
