A team of Tha Chatchai Police officers led by Lt Col Taweesak Kampeera arrested Chakrit Petcharat, from Nakhon Sri Thammarat, at the Phuket Checkpoint during a routine search of a bus heading from Phang Nga to Phuket.

In making the arrest, police seized 1,564 ya bah pills that were found inside a bag that Chakrit has in his possession.

Chakrit was taken to the Tha Chatchai Police Station nearby and charged with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell.

“Chakrit admitted that a man who he knew only as ‘Had’ called him to pick up the ya bah pills at a power pole near the Thep Satree Srisoonthorn military camp in Thung Song in Nakhon Sri Thammarat.,” explained Tha Chatchai Police Chief Col Prawit Suttiruangarun.

Always same-same, and not different!
Got the mule and the drugs, and that is it
Mule goes to prison, and where the drugs were made, came from, we never hear
We also never hear about destruction of the enormous amounts of confiscated drugs here
What happen with the drugs? 1564 pills in a police locker room?
Are that next week still 1564 pills?

What happened with that bust of 11,400 pills ?
