Bangkok cops nab yaba shipment hidden in sanitary pads

Police in Bangkok have arrested two drug couriers who they found smuggling yaba inside of sanitary pads.

The suspects, both 26-years-old, were hired by a man in prison to deliver the drugs to a buyer. For this service, they were to be paid THB5,000.

The Bangkok Post reports that Orawan Wongboonpatra, one of the accused smugglers, claimed that she took the job because she was out of work and needed money to support her children.
