Sattahip —

A streetwise stray discovered a surprising stash of more than 1,000 meth pills lying around on a local street in the Sattahip area.

Locals from the Phu Ta Luang sub-district of Sattahip district contacted police after spotting a white street dog walking around with a blue bag of methamphetamine pills in its mouth.

The area has many residents mostly elderly and children. According to local media, the dog that first found the stash is a stray named “Namdtan,” which means sugar in English. It is two years old, and some locals noticed it while it was gnawing a blue bag which subsequently caused a lot of meth pills to spill out.
