    Possibly to save getting a long prison sentence

    Probably to not get caught with the drugs or the £250k cash, both of which are illegal to transport and could get the person carrying that suitcase thrown in a SE Asian prison for the rest of their life. Why did they even carry it in there in the first place? Lots of reasons, but they clearly thought they could get away with it, an opinion they revised once there, maybe because they got paranoid, maybe because someone was legitimately onto them. So they ditched it and cut their losses at just the drugs and the money instead of taking on the additional loss of spending the rest of their life in prison.
