BANGKOK – February 4, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; the arrest of a drug dealer for selling heroin and ya-ice was announced at the Metropolitan Police Bureau by Pol. Lt. Gen. Khamronvit Thoopkrajarng, Commissioner; Pol. Maj. Gen. Waranwat Karoonyathat; Pol. Maj. Gen. Manit Wongsomboon, Deputy Commissioner; Pol. Lt. Col. Aekkavee Phongsoiphet, Deputy Superintendent; and the detective police team of Metropolitan Police Division 5.

The suspect was identified as Mr. Philes Maria Litzuhe, age 37, nationality Mozambique. He is accused of possessing ya-ice and heroin for selling; and for manufacturing ya-ice. Police seize the evidence of 112 grams of ya-ice, and 5.2 grams of heroin; as well as ingredients the suspect was using to make the ya-ice.

A police investigation had earlier revealed from sources that an African drug dealer named Mr. Philes was selling ya-ice and cocaine to Thais and foreign tourists in soi Nana, Bangkok. On February 2, a police team arranged to make an entrapment “sting” purchase of 10 grams of ya-ice from Mr. Philes.

When he brought the ya-ice and heroin to the uncercover agent at Soi Nana, he was arrested by police. The police then went to search his house in Plathong village, Amphur Bangphlee, Samut Prakan province. Mr. Philes had been staying at the house more than a year and paying rent of 12,000 THB per month.

Inside his house, police found chemical ingredients the suspect was using to produce ya-ice in a small laboratory set up in the house. The ingredients were later analyzed by the scientist at the Office of Protecting and Subduing Drugs, who said he believed that the chemical substances were left over from the producing of about 1 to 2 kg of ya-ice.

Because he was making and selling his own ya-ice, police said Mr. Philes sold the drug at a much cheaper price to his customers than the street market value, because he was eliminating the suppliers and lower-level dealers who want a big cut of the profits.

Mr. Philes will be charged with producing a Type-1 drug (ya-ice); and possession with intent to sell two Type-1 drugs (ya-ice and cocaine).

The police investigation of the suspect also revealed that another African man and a Thai woman were involved with his drug operation, and are tracking them down to arrest them.

Mr. Philes was also found to be associated with a group of African drug dealers in Pattaya and Malaysia. Police are also investigating the distribution route of drug money linked to a drug dealer in Indonesia.

The police commisioner said despite intense efforts by police to break up drug gangs, especially the Africans, the smuggling and selling of drugs still continues. “Lately there was the group that used the house to be the experimental place to produce ya-ice and cocaine by themselves,” he said.

The commissioner said local residents can help the police by reporting suspected drug dealers. “If anyone notices suspicious persons like the African who try to conceal their activities in their houses, especially at night, and this includes Thai people, please notify the police so we can inspect and arrest them,” he said.
