In an announcement issued on Saturday (Nov 16), Phuket Provincial Police reported that the raids, led by Maj Pichit Thongtor, led to the arrests of eight suspects along with the seizure of 1.95kg of marijuana, 203 pills of methamphetamine (ya bah), 17 grams of crystal meth (ya ice) and the firearm.

No dates or times of the arrests were reported in the announcement.

The report noted that Phanuphong “Gop” Plodthong, 22, was arrested at a house in Moo 1, Tambon Kathu, with seven marijuana plants and 1,770.77 grams of dried marijuana in packs, as well as 32 kratom leaves and one liter of kratom juice.

Of note the seven marijuana plants were still very small, recently planted in soil bags that were seated under a heated lamp for growing at home.

Phanuphong was taken to Kathu Police Station and charged with possession of a Category 5 drug, said the report.

At Chalong Municipality staff accommodation on Rattanakosin 200 Pi Rd in Moo 1, Wichit, on the outskirts of Saphan Hin, police arrested three suspects, added the report.

Weerayut “Wut” Intan, 26, was arrested with 12.2g of marijuana.

In the arrest of Eak-anan and Rinbussaya, police also seized a Honda Sonic motorbike, valued at about B10,000.

All three were taken to Wichit Police Station, where Eak-anan and Rinbussaya were charged with possession of a Category 1 drug and possession of a Category 5 drug, while Weerayut was charged with possession of a Category 1 drug.

Also reported as arrested at a house on Rattanakosin 200 Pi Rd in Moo 1, Wichit, was Yongyut “Eak” Phasomsub, 46, who was found in illegal possession of a magazine-loading 9mm Ekol Jackal handgun as well as five 9mm bullets and four .38-calibre bullets.
