Acting on information from undercover sources, officers under the command of Phuket Governor Phakaphong Tavipatana first raided a hotel room on Phoonpon Rd in Phuket Town at just after midnight Tuesday (June 18) where they caught 28-year-old Amonrat Sukcharoen and 23-year-old Ekkasit Rahem in illegal possession of drugs.

Further information led the officers to another hotel room on Phra Mettha Rd in Patong where more drugs and drug-using paraphernalia were found, as well as digital scales.

Drugs were also found behind the fuel tank cover of a car the suspects were using.

The pair were taken to Phuket Provincial Police Station where they were charged with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell.
