On 29 August 2007, at 1 AM, Police Lieutenant Colonel Santi Chainiranam and Police Captain Arthaporn Glan-Mueng, with a police team, arrested Mr. Michael Snell (48) from England for suspicion drug dealing. Police found the illicit drugs in Room 517 of L.V. Mansion, on Soi Lue-Bamroong, South Pattaya, Moo 10, Nongprue, Chonburi, where Mr. Snell is staying. The evidence consisted of Methamphetamine (Yah Ice) in 20 small clear plastic bags, with a total weight about 16.1 grams, hidden in an empty plastic container. Mr. Snell was charged with dealing in class one drugs.
Mr. Snell confessed that he has been coming to Thailand for four years and is addicted to Yah Ice. He said he bought the drugs from a Thai agency whose name he doesn’t know. He claimed that the drugs were for his personal use, but that he sold whatever he didn’t use, himself, to his foreign friends.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Santi revealed that many Thais and foreigners who were arrested for drug possession said that they bought the drugs from an English agent, called Mr. Mike, who stays at the “L.V. Mansion”. Police set up an operation in which they ordered Yah Ice from him and managed to catch and arrest Mr. Michael Snell. Police theorized that there are a number of Thais and foreigners involved in this drug dealing operation and will pursuer their investigation to apprehend and arrest other members of this gang.
