Drug Stash of Executed Drug Lord Discovered
3 September 2013
Police in Burma say they have found more than US$1.3 million worth of methamphetamine tablets buried by the late drug kingpin Naw Kham near the Thai-Burmese border, according to a report by DVB. State media reported on Sunday that a blue container with 650,000 stimulant tablets inside had been unearthed by heavy rain in Tachilek, Shan State. A police review later concluded that it had been buried a year and a half ago by the trafficking gang led by the drug warlord Naw Kham, who was executed in China in March after being found guilty of killing 13 Chinese sailors on the Mekong River.
