RANONG – February 6, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; the Khaosod newspaper reported the arrests of two suspects for drug dealing that included a paralyzed man. Making the arrests were Captain Surasak Pheungyaem and the officers of subduing drugs at Ranong police station.

The supects were identified as Ms. Atchara or Kook Phuaphan, age 23; and Mr. Phirom Boonrod or “Jane Online,” age 33, who is paralyzed from the chest down. During the arrest, 4 soldiers assisted to carry and lift the folding, 3-part special wheelchair used by Mr. Phirom with a catheter and urine bag.

Captain Surasak revealed that on the previous evening, the Ranong police station mobilized forces with the officers of subduing drugs to arrest Ms. Atchara while she was driving a motorbike to deliver drugs to a police undercover agent.

She was going to a prearranged location near Thaksin village, Moo 4 Tambon Bang Non, Amphur Meuang Ranong, Ranong province. She was arrested by police, who seized 20 amphetamine pills.

Ms. Atchara then confessed that she had bought amphetamines from her supplier, known as “Mr. Jane Online.” So the undercover agent made phone call to make a “sting” purchase of drugs from Mr. Jane Online, who arranged to have the amphetamines picked up at his house.

More than 10 officers and soldiers raided the house of the suspect on Moo 2 Tambon Bang Non, Amphur Meuang Ranong, Ranong province. The officers were startled to discover that the person all the teenagers in the village knew as “Jane Online” was a crippled man.

He was lying in his special folding reclining wheelchair when the police surprised him. Perched on the paralyzed man’s chest was a notebook computer connected with an air card.

When Mr. Jane Online saw the officers, he hurried to close his notebook computer immediately. But he had to confess when confronted with the evidence of 27 amphetamine pills, and the cash used for the undercover purchase. Police then searched the house, and found a total of 78 amphetamine pills stashed in several locations.

Mr. Phirom had demonstrated the using of his notebook skillfully to run his drug dealing operation. He told police that he would arrange to receive the amphetamines from Bangkok by contacting a “Mr. Pop,” who would deliver the amphetamines to be left at the poster or the kilometer pole on the side of street on Pechkasem road.

After the pills were picked up, Mr. Phirom would sell the drugs to customers in batches of 30-40 pills. He sold the drugs at a price of 270 THB per pill, for which he had paid 125 THB per pill.

Mr. Phirom was crippled in a car accident 10 years ago when the vehicle overturned. He was paralyzed below his chest, and has limited movement in his hands.

Ranong police said the arrests were the result of the officers secretly monitoring the behavior of Ms. Atchara from three months ago, after her husband was arrested for selling amphetamines. Ms. Atchara finally got arrested while delivering 20 amphetamine pills to the undercover officer. After her arrest, she cooperated with the police to tell them about Mr. Phirom and set up the undercover bust.

Besides the 78 amphetamine pills, police also seized a black Honda Jazz automobile used to deliver amphetamines, and Mr. Phirom’s notebook computer hooked up to the Internet for conducting drug transactions.

The police initially charged Ms. Atchara and Mr. Phirom with possessing Type-1 drugs (amphetamines) for selling and distribution. The two suspects were sent along with the evidence to the investigation officer of Meuang Ranong police station to prosecute further according to the law.
