During the short stakeout, officers observed many teenagers walking in and out of the house, not staying inside the premises for more than a few minutes each time. The police decide to act, stopping a young man who had just left the premises. They searched him and found an unknown amount of Yah-Bah in his possession. A report was then filed with the Sattahip District Chief Officer, who gave permission for his assistant to carry out a sting operation on the residence.

They sent the previously mentioned young man back into the house to purchase some more Yah-Bah from a lady now known to be Mrs. Pawanrat Passatranon, [65]. The plan involved providing the boy with the money for the drugs, having taken photocopies of the notes beforehand. The boy emerged from the house in possession of more drugs, at which point SADCO Mr. Kaewkum and his team of officers stormed the premises and arrested Mrs Pawanrat, beginning a search of the house.

After a brief investigation, police found 6 Yah-Bah tablets hidden in plastic straws, 4461 baht in cash, 4 mobile phones, 4 bank books and a large amount of ATM transaction receipts. During the search police also apprehended another suspect Mr. Narong Passatranon [62], Mrs. Pawanrat’s husband who was trying to flee the premises by jumping out of a window.

Officers interrogated Mrs Pawanrat who confessed to selling the drugs as she and her husband had accumulated a 60,000 baht dept with illegal money lenders, which they could not afford to pay. Mrs Pawanrat admitted she had held respected jobs within the community over the years, including: Social Worker, Community Leader, Assistant Village Headman and was a teacher at the Thamawittaya School. She also stated that she had been a member of the “War on Drugs” Center and a very active local healthcare volunteer, explaining that she only decided to deal drugs out of necessity to cover the payments on her illegal loan. Mrs Pawanrat informed police that she and her husband had attempted to earn money by starting a variety of other legitimate small businesses at which they had failed to make any money, subsequently placing them further in debt.

Mr. Narong admitted that he to was involved in supply drugs to various teenagers in the Sattahip region further adding that he was a former teacher from a school in Rayong. The pair also stated that they had not thought that they would be caught or arrested due to their extensive contacts within the local government.

Mr. Kaewkum, SADCO said that they had been alerted to the suspected drug dealings by concerned parents of the children from accused previous school, who had reported to police that the youths were purchasing drugs from the Passatranon’s house. It has been reported that various students of the school are willing to give evidence against Mr and Mrs Passatranon in court.
