A team of Border Patrol Police 425 based in Phang Nga led by Capt Ampon Samorthai arrested 36-years-old Prasongsak Petchchoo from Patong with 698.5 grams of ya ice at his rented room on Yaowarat Rd in Phuket Town at 5pm yesterday. Police also seized from him a mobile phone and digital scales.

Capt Ampon explained, “We received a tip-off from undercover officers that a man known only as Ek had been selling drugs to local teens and that he was staying in a rented a room on Yaowarat Rd.

“Undercover police monitored his activity and at 3am on Friday (June 3) spotted him coming out of the room holding a plastic bag. We immediately approached him, carried out a search and found three bags of ya ice totalling 149.4g in the plastic bag,” he said.

“Prasongsak then took us to his room where we discovered ten more bags of ya ice totalling 549.1g hidden in a wardrobe.”

“Prasongsak told us that all the drugs were his and that he got them from his friend name Kem or Chanon Sungkaew.

“Chanon called Prasong whilst he was being held at the police station and told him to take good care of the ya ice. We are now looking for Chanon,” Capt Ampon added.

Prasongsak was taken to Phuket City Police Station where he was charged with possession of Category 1 drug with intent to sell.

Well, this little dirt bag will now admit guilt, throw a few wais, do his pointless drug school and be back out there in no time.
