The joint forces team used undercover operatives to set-up a drug deal involving the purchase of 25 amphetamine pills for the agreed price of 5000 baht.

After contacting the dealer, a Mr Manoch Sutthiphiboon (nickname, Node) age 35, it was arranged for the money to be delivered to a house in Soi Bonkai, Sattahip. Following the delivery of money to the house, a further meet was organised to take possession of the drugs at the Payub Temple located within 1 kilometre of the house. The money was taken to the house and the joint forces team blocked all entries to the temple so that Mr Sutthiphiboon would not be able to escape the area once he arrived to drop off the drugs. Officers were informed that Mr Sutthiphiboon would be arriving on a Red Honda Click motorcycle and would be travelling alone. The joint forces team proceeded to wait for Mr Sutthiphiboon for over 30-minutes without reward.

The head of the joint forces operation decided that a change in tactics was going to be necessary if Mr Sutthiphiboon was going to be apprehended. It was decided that the team were going to storm the house in Soi Bonkai Sattahip, where the money was deposited. When officers entered the house they were confronted by two young people known now to be Mr Sittichai age 24 and Miss Wannaporn Phimton age 23, they were not in possession of any drugs. Mr Sutthiphiboon was found locked in the bedroom of the house in an attempt to avoid arrest. The officers managed to force entry into the bedroom finding 50 pills of amphetamines hidden inside a pair of shoes, along with a lot of other drug taking apparatus. Officers were also able to apprehend Mr Sutthiphiboon’s wife Mrs Lamyai Sonilard age 33, who was hiding in the bathroom of a neighbouring house. The initial money deposited for the purchase of the drugs was not recovered at the scene.

During interrogation Mr Sutthiphiboon declared that the drugs were his and that he had purchased them from a Mr Nai who works on a fishing boat in Bang Saray. He informed the officers that he purchased pills from Mr Nai at 150 baht each and usually offloaded them to local teenagers at a price of between 200 – 250 baht. Mr Sutthiphiboon informed that the other three suspects were not involved with the drug dealing and that it was solely his operation. In accordance with procedure the 3 other arrested suspects were given a blood test where it was discover that Mr Sittichai and Mrs Sonilard (the wife of Mr Sutthiphiboon) tested positive. They were sent to the drug rehabilitation and prevention center. Miss Phimton’s test however was clean, she was subsequently released to family members a short while after.

The money used in the transaction was never found, with Mrs Sonilard explaining that they had never received it. The undercover operatives used in the investigation were contacted only to find that both had switched off their mobile phones, in highly suspicious circumstances. Mr Suttiphiboon will be charged with possession and supply of a class-1 drug, whilst officers from the joint taskforce will continue with their investigations in an attempt to catch yet more of the drug dealers involved in the operation.
