Pol. Capt. Witsanu Chaisuwan (Deputy Inspector of Pattaya city police station) revealed that the police had been informed that Mrs. Taeng-orn (the defendant) was selling marijuana( ganja) to teenagers and foreigners for a long time so the officers planned to purchase some by using an undercover police officer at a price of 400THB.
