At 9pm, on the evening of October 21, a Banglamung police team arrested forty-five-year old Mr Thongchai Jaisuthi, who is known as Sing Kradooklek throughout the drug dealing community, in front of a house in Chatkaewkow, Soi Kaonoi, M. 5 Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi.
He has been caught in possession of twenty-three grams of ‘ice,; five Yabba tablets and 1700 baht in cash.
Police officers were acting on information that the area has become a popular hang out for drug taking teenagers. Officers were observing the area when they noticed Thongchai driving by and ‘looking suspicious.’
He was pulled over and a search revealed the drugs hidden in his shoe and behind the license plate of his vehicle.
Thongchai denied all knowledge of the ‘ice’ but admitted the Yabba was his. He later said that he was in the area to sell but, in the case of the women customers, if they had no money he would trade the drugs for sex.
He has been taken to Nongprue police station, charged and will await trial.
