A Nigerian in Thailand illegally for 14 months was arrested on both immigration and drug charges after officers found crystal methamphetamines hidden between his buttocks.

A suspiciously acting Godwin Chinedu Abgarakwe, 35, was stopped by Pattaya Tourist Police on a Third Road side street Feb. 24. A cavity search of his person revealed the ya ice in his anus.
