After receiving a tip-off that a number of drug dealers operated from a street on the outskirts of Phuket Town, a team of officers from Phuket City Police Station led by Col Sompong Thipapakul went to check out the area.

Officers first arrested Sanum Neatsawang, 63, on Anupas Phuket Karn Soi 12 when undercover officers approached her and asked if they could buy three methamphetamine pills (ya bah). She produced the pills and was arrested. She was then found to be in possession of a further 16 ya bah pills.
