A bungling Thai drug dealer who sent text messages goading police to apprehend him has been arrested with dozens of amphetamine pills, a police officer from Isarn said last Thursday (July 5).

The 24-year-old was caught in northeast Thailand, after police received several messages challenging them to make an arrest, Police Major Viriyaphab Wangprom said.
The texts, apparently sent in anger after a number of his gang had been caught by police, read “come and arrest me, I am in Laos”.
The man was charged with drug trafficking offences after being caught with 90 amphetamine tablets.
