“Both of them have been charged with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell, and Chayan was charged with possession of an illegal firearm and illegal possession of ammunition.” Col Urumporn said.

The third suspect, Chaiyot Sakultab, 30, was also taken into custody on Tuesday after he was found in possession of 199 ya bah pills, an undisclosed amount of ya ice and drug-taking equipment.

Great Photo! Culprits not exposed ( according the law). But is it not a job/functioning handicap for undercover detectives to expose themselves? I have seen some of detectives now several time on press photos.  Sure, criminals do that to.
