PHUKET: Police on Friday morning (Mar 31) arrested a methamphetamine delivery man who was carrying a kilo of ya ice and nearly 8,000 pills of ya bah worth about B5 million into Phuket.

 

At 9.30am yesterday a team of officers from various branches of Phuket Police arrested Somphon Meemuangnok, 32, for smuggling copious amounts of drugs into Phuket for distribution among local teenagers.

 

The arrest of Somphon was announced by Phuket police chief Maj Gen Teeraphol Thipjaroen at press conference held this morning. Gen Teeraphol explained that local police received a tip-off from their sources that a big drug delivery from Bangkok is expected to happen this week and the drug mule will be using one of the night buses arriving on Friday morning.

 

The source indicated that Somphon will be the man to deliver drugs and when the bus arrived at Phuket Bus Terminal 2 law enforces had already been there waiting for the suspect. Having searched the man's luggage officers found a cardboard box with a kilo of yah ice (crystal methamphetamine) and nearly 7,886 pills of ya bah (methamphetamine). Police said the estimated street value of the drugs they seized was approximately B5 million.

 

Somphon was taken to Patong police station, questioned and charged with possession of category 1 drugs with intent to sell. Police officers are confident that he is a member of a major drug network operating in Thailand.

Glad to see another drug bust, and someone gong to jail.  Drugs are the cause of somany crimes in the world, and it is

too bad that so many people are still hooked on them, pills, smokes, needles, any way, drugs are just bad news.

Geezer

No sympathy for drug runners, pushers, sellers or anyone associated with drugs.

 

die ....   rot in hell.

spoken with your usual open-mindedness- not!!!

but please do enjoy your alcohol & ciggies as you hurl your hypocritical, outdated and ill-informed invective

without basis in fact or reason... :drunk:

when most civilized countries and peoples are moving towards enlightened compassion and decriminalization,

it is regressive views from hardline neanderthals that tarnish everybody, even those of us who enjoy a spliff here and there...

:stoner:

if the shoe fits, wear it...

I don't smoke cigarettes ...  I do drink alcohol everyday ,  which is legal as the current law stands.

Drugs are not.  Drugs wreck lives.  Drugs are dangerous , having a beer is not.  Ice is rampant in the US, Australia and the UK.  

Users, pushers, sellers, mules and the likes who take drugs should be locked up.

If laws were much tougher 20 years ago for drug takers we would not have such prolific use.   Drug taking kills people who don't know what it is and they try something that is dangerous.  Drug sellers kill the young by pushing their product to make money.

Drugs are very bad.   Having a beer is not very bad.......    it's that simple.

Fact is much more people die every year from legal drugs like alcohol or nicotine and big pharma like Fentanyl and other opioids than from illegal ones. Somebody who says about himself:" ..I do drink alcohol everyday" is not qualified to criticize people about drug use. You are a first class hypocrite.
