Sakoo Police Deputy Chief Lt Col Urumporn Koondejsumrit explained to The Phuket News that the first two suspects – Chayan Srinaun, 25, and Adireg Mansep, 37 – were arrested at a nearby mangrove forest after police had the men under surveillance.

The men were found in possession of 990 pills of methamphetamine (ya bah) and 24.35 grams of crystal meth (ya ice), and a homemade gun with bullets.

“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.

“He, too, has been is charged with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell,” Col Urumporn confirmed.

Police denied to reveal where or at what time Chaiyot was arrested, and what led officers to making the arrest.
