Police announced on Saturday (May 5) that an ongoing investigation led them to believe that Jenrarong Nareewandee, 37, was selling drugs in Phuket, and at 8:30pm last Thursday (May 3) officers followed him to his condo in Kathu, where they raided his room.

In the condo, officers found 15 methamphetamine (ya bah) pills and 50.87 grams of crystal meth (ya ice) kept in a total of 11 plastic bags, as well as a digital scale and nine bullets (calibre not reported).

In making the raid officers also seized as evidence Jenrarong’s Toyota car, a gold necklace, two gold rings, two mobile phones and his ATM card, with a total value estimated at about B336,000.

During questioning, Jenrarong confessed that he received his drugs from a “Mr Surachai”, leading officers to raid and arrest Surachai Triwong, 33, at a residence in Rassada at 1:pm the next day.

Police said they continue their investigation.  Really?
When are we going to see the thai rich influential drugs factory managers and their 'investors/bankers' on a safari photo behind a police table surrounded by police officers?
Yes, I know, it is just a dream.
And, Postal services still not use drugs dogs?
