Ang Beng Bee tried to kill himself after he was arrested.

A SINGAPOREAN man went berserk and tried to kill himself by cutting his wrists and throat with a razor after he was arrested by Thai officials for having over 4,000 ecstasy pills, Thai online news MCOT said yesterday.

Ang Beng Bee, 46, was caught at a Thai-Malaysian border checkpoint in the Sadao district of Songkhla province during a random check. Thai customs officers found 4,384 ecstasy pills, 1g of crystal methamphetamine or "Ice" and five nimetazepam pills, a hypnotic drug, in his luggage.

Their total street value: S$152,000. Ang, who was treated at Sadao Hospital, said he had travelled from Johor to sell the drugs in Sadao and Hat Yai.

It's not known how Ang, who speaks fluent Thai, came in possession of the weapon, Pattaya Daily News reported. He may have concealed it on him, the report said.
