The arrest followed an investigation by the Border Patrol Police, Phuket Vice Governor Vikrom Jakthee announced yesterday (Feb 24).

The bust followed officers arresting Wanchai ‘Than’ Kobkit at a residence in Soi Mae Kim, off Thepkrasattri Rd in Phuket Town, after he was found in possession of narcotics.

Wanchai named his supplier as Thanalop ‘Noom’ Bunnalang, leading officers to move in and arrest Thanalop at a house in Soi Koh Kaew 8 at about 9pm on Monday (Feb 22).

In taking Thanalop into custody, officers seized 3,478.08 grammes of ya ice and 1,564 meth pills, V/Gov Vikrom said.
