BANGKOK – November 19, 2013[Pattaya Daily News]; Police Gen. Somyot Pumpanmuang, (the Vice Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police), plus Police Maj. Gen. Supisan Pakdeenaruenart, (the Commander of the Crime Suppression Division), brought commando military forces in to apprehend Mr. Alan Kelly Perusta, (Filipino), Mr. Yi Kiangtan Lim, (Taiwanese), Mr. David Shackles, (British), Mr. Yagot Alan Stammers, (British), and Mr. Alexander, (Slovakian). The arrests were in Phuket on September 26th 2013 and Thai authorities have sent them back for prosecution in America, with strict security involved in their transportation.

Police Gen. Somyot stated that the five accused those had been sent to the DEA for prosecution on warrants issued in America, as they were all transnational drug traffickers, who had fled USA to lay low in Phuket, (Thailand). This is part of the same group led by Mr. Joseph Emanuel Hunter, an American citizen, who had also been arrested and sent back to the US recently.

He further commented that Mr. Hunter was the gang leader in the USA and the gang sold drugs and had another outlawed business, but the movement was mainly based in Asia. They used Thailand as their shelter to hide, plan and command their criminal operations, which was connected with the drug smuggling in Thailand, (both in and out), plus other serious crimes and they had networks in many countries. Successful drug traffickers are now highly sophisticated multi-national operations, but the police also use advanced detection techniques. Many criminals think that it is easy to hide within the Thai Kingdom and go undetected, but the astute local police have a very good knowledge of what most foreign visitors are actually doing here.
