At 5pm yesterday a team of officers led by Lt Col Weerayuth Sitthirattanakul of the Thalang Police arrested 21-year-old Ms Paphawadee “Bee” Yuankaid who was found in possession of 48,700 ya bah pills near a canal in the mangrove forest of Baan Para in Moo 4 Pa Khlok.

The arrest of Paphawadee was announced at a press conference held this morning (Nov 4) at 10am by Deputy Commander of the Region 8 Police Lt Gen Chalit Thinthanee at the Provincial Police Station.

On display at the press conference were seized items including 24 bundles of ya bah pills (each containing 2,000 pills), one bag containing 700 pills, a Honda Scoopy motorbike, three mobile phones, B10,000 in cash and others items.

Paphawadee was not presented at the press conference.

Lt Gen Chalit explained, “The arrest came after we received a tip-off from undercover officers at 4:30pm on Thursday that there is ongoing drug activity near the Baan Para mangrove area in Pa Khlok. We were told that dealers use the area to hide their drugs before distributing them.

“Officers went by vehicle to the area, however the road was too narrow so officers had to go to the mangrove forest by foot. After walking for about 200-300 metres officers spotted two men and a woman near the canal. The three started to run as soon as they saw police,” he said.

“Officers managed to capture Paphawadee but the other two suspects got away, but Paphawadee told officers the names of the two men, Mr Adisak Homhuan and Mr Pai, she did not know the latter’s full name.

“Adisak is already wanted by police with warrants out for him for possession of drugs and illegal possession of firearm. Paphawadee was also arrested in 2013 for possession of a Category 1 Drug [ya ice].”

“Officers discovered the drugs inside a longtail boat which Paphawadee said belonged to Mr Adisak. She said that she only watched the items and was not selling drugs,” he added.

Paphawadee was taken to Thalang Police Station to be charge with possession of a Category 1 Drug with intent to sell. Officers are continuing their search for Adisak and Pai.
