Thai customs and anti-narcotics officials seized about 2.31 kilograms of cocaine, found in an airmail parcel sent from Portugal, at a cargo terminal at Suvarnabhumi airport today (Tuesday).

Officials at the terminal thought the parcel was unusually heavy and alerted Thailand Post and the Office of the Narcotic Control Board, as well as airport security officers, seeking a thorough examination of the item.

They opened the parcel and found a play station and white power wrapped in a black plastic bag. The substance subsequently tested as cocaine, worth about 11 million baht on the street.
