Sriracha, the 25th of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: In the meeting hall of Gendarme Command Division of Chon-Buri, police Major General Thanet Pinmuanggnarm (Chon-Buri Gendarme Command Superintendent) revealed that a joint taskforce involving several organisations within the Pattaya and Chon-Buri region had successfully apprehended a major drug dealer in possession of 20,000 pills of the class-1 drug Yabba. Police arrested the suspect whilst he was waiting to distribute the haul to several smaller dealers of the Sriracha area.

Maj. Gen. Pinmuanggnarm announced that Mr. Sungvien Khumjeen from Samed, Chon-Buri, had been arrested in possession of 20,000 Yabba pills separated into 20 packages of 1,000 tablets each and concealed within a brown paper bag. The street value of the confiscated drugs has been estimated in the region of 4 million baht. At the time of his arrest Mr. Khumjeen was sitting at a bus stop on the Sukhumvit Road opposite the Crystal Bay Golf Course in Sriracha. The consignment of drugs was hanging from his Suzuki Sky Drive motorbike.

Mr. Khumjeen, a known dealer of the area, had been sitting at the bus stop waiting to distribute the illegal drugs to several smaller dealers in the Sriracha area. Upon interrogation Mr. Khumjeen revealed that he had merely been a drug mule for a larger dealer known as Mr. Song [25] from Klong Toei Urban in Bangkok.

Maj. Gen. Pinmuanggnarm revealed that all of Mr. Khumjeen’s property, including his residence, 2 cars and his motorbike had been confiscated in accordance with the Anti-drug Act. Officers will now examine the evidence in the hopes that the taskforce will be able to apprehend yet more of the suspects involved in the illegal distribution of this class-1 drug.
