Should we assume the local police was not aware about this business? 555

Should be asking, "why did it take so many years for the cops to act"

Surprize, surprize. A few years ago, I've heard an interesting chat between a foreigner and a Reggae bar owner on Ko Samet.

 

   The foreigner was very worried that an undercover cop would get wind of his little purchase.

 

   The Thai then started laughing and said to him that all the drug business is done by them.

 

   Something must have gone wrong here.

I thought all bars are closed? Anyway, the owner should be ok if owner is willing to pay something.

"A tip-off to police led officers to raid the “Barnana bar” on Phi Phi Island on March 1..."

 

Even if they weren't closed down by present regulations, being closed wouldn't mitigate the offences.

How much is a thai stick theses days?

23m in the bank surely they had deposits that stated 

sold thai sticks = Baht?

sold alcohol = Baht?

costs = Baht?

profit =Baht?

A good business with 23m in the bank this business model 

actually works.

"The telling clue came on Mar 14, when she withdrew B2.08 million from one of the accounts at the Bank of Ayudhya (Krungsri) branch at the Jungceylon shopping mall in Patong."

 

  In the USA, in general, transactions over 10,000 USD require the financial institution to file a transaction form.  Does not necessarily mean something illegal happened, but they have to file.  For instance if you cash in 10,000 USD worth of chips at a casino, out comes the paperwork even if you have lost 100,000 dollars.
