They'll probably find another couple hundred pills if they turn her upside down and shake her.

Wow long time not seen something like this, Nigerians excepted. Probably dates back to the Prey Sor sweddish blogger "cookie", and SHV Joe Happy Hippie, and neither were producers.
I think this bunch is properly and utterly fucked, I forsee 25+ years sentences.
Someone should have told them that the jail is currently overpopulated (from 350 to 600+ prisoners from 2012 to 2016 with foreigners numbers more than doubled to 20 or 30). That of course leads to nasty living conditions like an ongoing scabies epidemic... But then it will shortly move to way out of town near the stadium. Probably larger, I think it was built as part of a land swap and apparently short founded. The location in itself will make everything more complicated and expensive for the inmates.
Lastly if I can't recall ever seeing any of the foreigners, the khmer girl is a VH skank called Danita. She is regularly banned from night bars for making problems and being violent, she will fit in just right...

Having seen an MDMA synthesis in person (about 20 years ago, you don't need to call the cops) ... No. They were not manufacturing MDMA.

They were maybe pressing MDMA or another drug into tablets, as evidenced by the digital scales and pill press and pill clays they appear to have.

But they don't have laboratory glassware of any sort in these pictures. It's not an easy drug to make. It's quite involved and complicated compared to something like methamphetamines.

So ... No. These are not chemists. They were most likely just importing the drugs from elsewhere in a crystalline/powder form and making them more marketable or easier to sell by pressing them into tablets.

White chick with dreads amongst the arrested? Who would have guessed?

Man, this is a big bust and it looks like they (not sure who was involved in actual production) were producing a lot. They'll be gone for a while. What's the minimum, five years?
