Pattaya – On 6 February, at 12:20am, Police Major Pasagorn, of the Pattaya Undercover Police Unit, led a sting operation at the Grand Lotus Village, Soi 5, Theppasit Road, Jomtien, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi. An undercover officer, posing as if he were looking to buy drugs, purchased a quantity of illegal, class one drugs (yaba tablets) from two men, who were Volunteer Policemen. The two men were brought to the police station. A search of the two yielded 130 yaba tablets.

The two volunteer policemen confessed that were, indeed, involved in the distribution of illegal drugs. They explained that they purchased the yaba from an agent in Sattahip. One of the miscreants, Mr. Tongsai Jantong(50), is from Nongprue, Banlamung. He and his partner MR. Pan have been selling yaba for over a year. They were on a volunteer police committee at Watboonganjanaram Temple. Mr. Tongsai code was “Watboon 223.” The two police volunteers are now on the other side of the bars awaiting their day in court.


Note: From Editor
There have been a number of incidents, reported recently, about errant volunteer police, involved in the illegal drug trade and other criminal activities. It seems that some immoral individuals use their positions in the Volunteer Police to facilitate their nefarious activities. Better screening and supervision of the volunteers are obviously needed.
