At 00:30 am Police Colonel Teerapol Jindaloung, on behalf of the Pattaya Superintendent, had been notified that a foreign man had arranged to deliver drugs to his regular customers at the car park of the Barrak 93 Pub, South Pattaya, Moo. 10, Nongprue, Banglamung. A police team was rushed to the scene to await the suspect’s arrival.

Eventually a full spec black Toyota Fortuner, no. 4608 Bangkok drove into the car park and a foreign man got out leaving two Thai women sitting in the vehicle. Suddenly, the man spotted the police, ran back to the car and drove straight at a police car which was attempting to block his escape.

His sped towards Soi Batman, South Pattaya, with the police in hot pursuit. At one point he rammed a police car while heading into Soi Sukhumvit 71. His vehicle eventually became too damaged to drive and he stopped at the railway road. He got out of the car and ran into the bushes where he made his escape.

The police team searched the suspect’s car, which was covered with many police logo stickers. The two women in the car, Mrs Wanpen Teenon [41] and Anong Sumdangsetch [29], confessed that they were the foreign man’s girlfriends. They identified him as Mr. Troy Curtis, a 56 year old British national. They claimed he hired them regularly to accompany him, but added that they did not know he was a drug dealer though they admitted he had often consumed drugs [cocaine] in their presence.

The police found their claims of innocence unconvincing and took them into custody for further investigation. Later on, police discovered documents identifying a Thai woman (name withheld) as the owner of the car. They also ascertained Mr. Troy’s residence to be at 56/2 Nongprue Soi 3, Moo. 2. The police took the suspect’s two girlfriends with them to search Mr. Troy’s house.

In his room police found 2 grams of Yah Ice, 17 grams of Cocaine , some dried marijuana, 7 needles, a weighing machine, plastic bags etc. Many bank books were also found together with Mr. Troy’s passport. Police presumed that a locked safety box must contain some drugs or other illegal items. Police confiscated all the items as evidence.

A warrant has been issued for Mr. Troy’s arrest. He faces serious charges, including the possession of narcotics class 1, 2 and 5. Police hope to bring him to justice as soon as possible.
