After stopping a commuter minibus and checking the ID of all on board, officers noticed that Teerayut Malihom, 34, was “behaving suspiciously” and invited him to get out of the minibus so they could check his luggage.

In a brown bag, they found the meth pills. Teerayut admitted the pills were his, saying he had bought them in Songkhla for B59,250 or B150 a pill, and was due to deliver them to a man he knew only as Fad, in the Koh Siray area.

Teerayut was charged with possession of a Category 1 drug for sale. Tah Chat Chai police are working with their counterparts in Koh Siray to catch Fad.
