PHUKET – June 20, 2014 [pdn]; At about 8pm on Wednesday, narcotics suppression police arrested Kritsakon “Kiet” Yuchareu, 45, of Samut Sakorn after raiding room 310 of Saruda Mansion apartment on Ratsada Anusorn Rd in Ratsada sub-district of Phuket City, where they found 0.94 grams of Ya Ice (Crystal Meth) hidden in the ceiling light fixture.

 

After subsequent questioning, police say Mr Kiet revealed to them that he had more drugs at a rented room on Ratcha-uthit 200 pee Rd in Patong, where a subsequent search by police uncovered more Ya Ice in several plastic bags, totalling 215.84 grams in weight, in addition to 3,800 ya ba (amphetamine) pills, which were stored in a glass jar hidden in the ceiling.

 

The street value of the drugs is no less than B2 million.

 

Police said they’d been tracking Mr Kiet for 7-8 months leading up to the arrest, which is the latest development in a five-year-old investigation into the dealings of the “Ek-Mahachai” drug ring operating out of Samut Sakhon, just west of Bangkok.

 

The investigation is ongoing.
