SONGKHLA, Sept 14 – A Singaporean man was arrested Tuesday at a Thai-Malaysian border checkpoint in Sadao district of Songkhla province with more than 4,000 ecstasy pills and other illicit drugs, worth Bt3.5 million (about US$113,800), according to a Thai customs official.

When the authorities found the drugs and arrested the man carrying them, he went berserk and tried to attempt suicide by cutting his wrists and throat.

Paisarn Chuenjit, head of Sadao Customs House, said 46-year-old Ang Beng Bee was stopped when customs and immigration officers randomly checked a passenger van coming from Malaysia to Thailand on which Mr Bee was a passenger.
