BANGKOK – Two Malaysian men could face the death penalty after being arrested with drugs worth more than two million dollars, in a haul which Thai police Friday suspect was being trafficked through the country.

Teh Soo Keat, 33, and Tan Choon Kuant, 49, were found with 20 kilos (44 pounds) of crystalline methamphetamine – also known as “ice” – and 1.2 kilos (2.6 pounds) of heroin wrapped in black plastic in the boot of their vehicle.

Police said the “ice” alone was worth 60 million baht (1.98 million dollars).

The pair were arrested on Wednesday morning in Petchaburi province after officers stopped and searched their car.
