Pattaya, the 17th of August 2010: At approximately 12:30am on Tuesday, Major Chot Lamom and Captain Jamrat Thongjinda (Pattaya Police Investigators) conducted an operation aimed at apprehending a known narcotics dealer in the Pattaya City area.

Following recent investigations into suspected dealings in the Banglamung district, Maj. Lamom and his team successfully apprehended Mr. Kringkrai Khongplume [28] at the Shong Apartment in Soi Chalermphrakiet 12.

Mr. Khongplume, a Thai national with unknown foreign heritage, was arrested after police instigated a sting operation on a suspected drug deal. In the bust, officers found an amount of 6.5 grams of the illegal narcotic Ya-Ice in his possession, along with a .38 calibre revolver and ammunition contained concealed inside his black-grey vehicle.

Under interrogation, Mr Khongplume confessed to owning all the confiscated evidence and accepted that he had been in the process of conducting a drug deal in the area. He explained that he had been selling the class-1 restricted drug, Ya-Ice, in Pattaya for several years, mainly targeting Thai youths and working girls.

Mr. Khongplume admitted to having sold Ya-Ice for between 2,500-3,000 baht per gram, revealing that he used the proceeds to substitute his lack of legal gainful employment.

Police have now remanded the offender in custody awaiting further judicial proceedings to commence. Investigations into Mr. Khongplume’s dealings are continuing in an attempt to further subjugate the illegal operation.
