The woman, identified as Ratree Kansamthia, a resident of Moo 3, Ratsada, was placed under arrest in front of a 7-Eleven store in Ao Por, technically Moo 6, Pa Khlok, at about 10am on Wednesday (Dec 14), police reported.

Ratree was found in possession of 1,720 ya bah pills in total, officers noted in their report.

Ratree was taken to Thalang police station and charged with “unauthorized distribution of a Category 1 narcotic”, police reported.

The arrest came as police in Phuket continue their ‘Phuket Crime - Free’ campaign to make Phuket a “safer place” for the general public.

We never will hear/read from  who madam Ratree got 1720 ya bah pills. The bug stops with her. 'We' don't want to disturb the middleman/suppliers/producers, do we? That are influential Hi-So's.

Phuket crime-free?!? LOL. I must have woken up in a different universe. To make Phuket a safer place you would have to stop tourism altogether. No incoming money to fight over who gets it and who did they prey on for it!
