Myanmar meth haul worth US$100m

 Myanmar authorities have seized methamphetamine tablets worth an estimated US$100 million from an abandoned truck in Yangon, state media said.


 Police found the unattended vehicle stuffed with sacks carrying an estimated 27 million tablets in the industrial suburb of Mingalardon on Sunday, according to the Myanmar-language Mirror newspaper.

 Sunday's find was “the biggest stimulant tablet seizure during this government,’’ a police officer at the anti-drug trafficking department told AFP. 

 He said the estimated value of the haul was calculated based on an assessment of the current market price. 

 The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has said methamphetamine – known as “yaba'' or crazy medicine in Thailand – dominates the global market for synthetic drugs and is expanding significantly in Southeast and East Asia.
