An Italian man has been arrested after a large quantity of ecstasy pills were found stashed inside a package mailed to him from the Netherlands. 

 

Police said the arrest came after customs officials inspected a package addressed to the Italian man.

 

Inside they found the 500 ecstasy pills hidden inside packets of instant noodles.

 

A warrant was then obtained to search the man’s house on Koh Phangan, where he lived with his wife and 5 year old daughter.

 

During the search, police also discovered 15.770 grams of methamphetamine.

 

The man faces charges of illegal drug possession with intent to supply.

 

He is currently being held at Koh Phangan police station pending further legal proceedings.

Who would send instant noodles to Thailand? That would raise suspicion immediately.

Who would send drugs from a EU country to Thailand?!? I'm not familiar with dtreet prices, but bet the stuff is cheaper locally.

Not sure if ecstasy is readily available here. Make a killing at those full moon parties.

They cost 2 euro each in Holland.

 

I don't know the RRP in KPG, but for proper E's in the land of dirty yabaa, perhaps 300 baht?

 

100k+ baht profit if so.

 

Selling to backpackers at 500thb, 200k+ profit.

 

If 1k baht, almost half a million profit.

 

 

I don't know the RRP in KPG, but would wager it's not less than 300b, and more than likely quite a bit more.

Yeah.

 

Someone living there with a pill press could make a killing making fake ones with caffeine powder. 30 mins on the beach then run and hid back in their house for the rest of the night.

   You've got to pay for stupidity. How can anybody send instant noodles to the Land of instant noodles having more than 15 g of speed in his house awaiting the post delivery????

 

  Ridiculous, he's right to hide his face behind something.

 

The 2019 Wurlitzer prize goes to Mr. Italiano.

I'm sure you get them cheaper, a Euro or so, when you buy more at the right address without middlemen.

Nope, people sell pills with caffeine and other substances as ecstasy, but the ripped off people can hardly go to the cops, could they?

 

Better to drink a few Espressos, methinks.

How would the buyer know they're getting the real thing? I think it would be almost impossible to get a premium price from punters in LOS, because every 'vendor' is going to say their drugs are legit. 

That said, seeing the pictures of him it doesn't look like economics would be his strong suit...

Simply call them and tell them that it belongs to you. Normally they react quickly.

Proper E goes for far higher in Thailand, i once asked prices i was shocked. Really worth wile to import if you don't get caught. Not worth the risk for me dealers almost always get caught.

What an absurd comment. All recreational drug users have families. If they are dealers that us how they support their dependants.

Supposing someone got your address and sent you a load of drugs through the post to your Thai address? What would happen to you....and your family?
