PATTAYA – March 12, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; the arrests of two suspects for drug possession and dealing was announced by Pol. Col. Suppachai Phuikaewkam, director of Banglamung police station, Chonburi; with Pol. Lt. Col. Jakkrin Tuasuparp vice detective inspector; Pol. Lt. Col. Teeradej Mas Thanapan, vice director; Pol. Lt. Capt. Wirot Intachome, vice suppression inspector; and Special Suppression forces.

The first suspect was identified as Mr. Suwan jaikwang, or Bank, 26 years old, living in Nakluea, Banglamung, Chonburi. He was charged under the 1991 bill for suppressing people who commit drug crimes.

Police seized 4,100 tablets of meth, 24.7 grams of ice, a racing-modified white Toyota Vios, a cell phone, and 30,000 baht cash.

Pol. Col. Supachai Phuikaewkam revealed that the arrest resulted from the previous bust of a minor drug dealer. Officers detained the person to investigate. He pled guilty and admitted receiving meth from Mr. Suwan.

So the police planned to entrap Mr. Suwan by buying1,000 tablets of meth. An appointment was made to have Mr. Suwan deliver the drugs to soi Banglalow 99, moo 5, Nakluea.

When Mr. Suwan drove up in a car to deliver it, police officers hiding nearby ambushed the suspect and showed themselves to arrest him. During questioning, Mr. Suwan claimed he only delivered the drugs.

Mr. Suwan said he worked for a big dealer who told him where to deliver the drugs, and he got paid 20-30,000 per time. Mr. Suwan had been making drug deliveries for 8 months, and used the money he made to spend for shopping, going out and modifying his car.

The second suspected arrested by police was identified as Mr.Anuwat Ketchawee, or Ohm, 25 years old, from Pissanuloke. He was caught with 5.63 grams of ice contained in 6 bags.

The police had set up a checkpoint to enforce traffic rules at the railway side road that crosses with soi Plabwarn Hill. When Mr. Anuwat rode his motorcycle past, he looked suspicious, so the police asked him to stop to check him, and found the ice.

Mr. Anuwat confessed that he bought from a “Mr. Mote,” whose real name he did not know. He told police the ice was for his personal use. The police sent both suspects to the detectives to prosecute for possession of Type-1 drugs for sale.
