Myanmar security forces have seized stimulant drugs separately in Maungtaw, western Rakhine state, and Muse, northeastern Shan state, Xinhua reported.

During their patrol in Maungtaw, security forces found a boat on Naaf River and asked it to stop but it sailed away.

The boat was then found at the shore near U Shal Kya creek mouth with 117,200 stimulant tablets worth of 234.4 million kyats (156,200 U.S. dollars) on board.

Similarly, a local anti-drug squad confiscated 4,875 stimulant tablets during a raid on a civilian house in Winenar village in the border town of Muse, Shan state on the same day.
