After receiving the tip-off police went to investigate, and at 8pm officers saw the two suspects and presented themselves. The suspects tried to escape but failed.

Police conducted a search of the two men but found nothing illegal in their possession. However, the men did confess that they had taken drugs.

After further investigation Sethhirun and Boonrit confessed that they had drugs hidden at the Soi Kophai apartment, so police went to conduct a search of the property.

The two suspects were charged for possession of possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell and illegal possession of a firearm.
