The four men were trapped by a police sting operation starting with the arrest of Mr. Tavin Noochuah [29] which lead to Mr. Somsak Mohamad and then to Mr. Sang who was residing in Samutprakan. Mr. Sang had also co-operated with the police concerning a further 9 suspects.

Mr. Sang had confessed that he had been in the business for nearly one year. He had brought 2,000 Yahbah tablets each trip from Bangkok to Pattaya for which he got paid 10,000 baht per trip. He said he had been saving the money for his mother’s eye operation.
