The pill-making machine was in a warehouse at Boonlai Products Ltd. On number 26/27 Moo 9, Napa, Muang, Chonburi.


Police raided a Chonburi warehouse and seized a rotary machine that can manufacture 3,600 methamphetamine tablets per hour. The pills would be ordered in batches of 20,000 to 40,000 by an inmate in Bang Kwang Central Prison near Bangkok.


Police broke into the warehouse and found a rotary methamphetamine producing machine with 10 thrusting heads, which could produce 3,600 tablets per hour.

The police detained the warehouse keeper, Mr. Boy Prapeynee, age 24, from Prae. They also found two pen guns, which they confiscated, and seized a gray Toyota Vios sedan, registration code Nor Or 5828 Bangkok.

During questioning, Mr. Boy confessed that he produced the meth tablets under the orders of the inmate “Mr. Mac” in Bang Kwang prison. Mr. Boy would produce between 20,000 to 40,000 tablets per order.
