Police said investigators found 40 green backpacks, each containing 50 bundles of methamphetamine pills, an equivalent to 4 million pills in total.
The discovery was made after Pha Muang task force soldiers signalled the pickup with Bangkok licence plates to stop at the Pha Hong checkpoint in Chai Prakan early Thursday, as the driver appeared to be acting suspiciously.
At the press briefing, the driver admitted that he had been hired to deliver the drugs.
Police said they have collected some information but were unable to reveal them as they were extending the investigation to find others involved.
The seizure followed a tip-off of a young man preparing to transport drugs from a hill-tribe village from Chiang Mai, another northern province.
