The Samut Prakan police chief fired 2 officers for allegedly planting methamphetamine pills on a woman and extorting her for 25,000 baht, then later demanding sex. The sacked police officers may also face criminal charges.

The 34 year old woman sought help from the “Help Crime Victim Club,” claiming that the 2 police officers in Samut Prakan, a province just southeast of Bangkok, searched her at a police booth and planted 2 methamphetamine pills on her, known as “ya ba” which is Thai for “crazy drug.”

A 51 year old senior police sergeant, named by Thai media as Wongchaiyaphat, allegedly demanded the woman pay a 50,000 baht bribe to avoid arrest. The woman says she was able to bring down the bribe to 25,000 baht. She claims that the sergeant later called her and demanded sex, saying he would arrest her if she couldn’t find someone to satisfy him.

Provincial police chief Chumphon Phumphuang transferred both Wongchaiyaphat and another sergeant allegedly involved in the case during an investigation into the woman’s claims. Yesterday, he fired both of the officers. Criminal charges may follow.

    MAY face criminal charges. Yes well this is Thailand.
    They probably will not, and in four months be back in the police force.
    Another day another rotten corrupt Thai copper caught, or in this case two rotten corrupt coppers.
    What is the most un-corrupt section of society in Thailand?
    It’s not the government.
    It’s not the army.
    It’s not the police.
    It’s not the monks.
    It’s not the taxi drivers.
    It’s – It’s. I give up. Anyone know?

      Go home. There is little point in you staying. You made a scenario that hasn’t happened and then talked about it as though it has,

      Go home.

        Slugger, FWIW you’re apparently unaware that Toby A left Thailand several months ago when he was unable to extend his visa here and he moved to Cambodia where they take a more relaxed view of expat dross.

        … and, of course, there are no “liars, cheats, scammers, and constant corruption” in Cambodia …..

    I used the word probably. I am not making a scenario, I’m suggesting one.
    By the way I’m not in Thailand, or I might go home. I agree if I was in Thailand there would be little point in staying, among the liars, cheats, scammers, and constant corruption.

    Nothing will come of it and no charges will be files. This is Thailand where corruption is rife from the top to the bottom. Nothing ever changes and never will.
    Disgraceful and shameful behavior like this is nothing new.
    So many times you see police stopping people for no reason and demanding money for absolutely no credible reason or laws broken. Many Things need to change.

    I’ve never aimed high enough in my life. Demanding a bribe, maybe. Demanding sex, probably would never have the nerve. Demanding a bribe and sex. You see, that’s setting your sights on the stars.

        Maybe you should recognize your country has a major image problem then you can ask yourself why then you can go do something about it? If you are not one of the crooks (even the prince there was caught running scams last year) then why should you be offended? I avoid going to Nigeria because I don’t want my sleigh to be confiscated and the presents stolen by the “Naughty” before I had a chance to give the “Nice” kids their due.

  • Overstay more than 1 Year = 3 years ban from Thailand and 20,000 Thai baht overstay fine
  • Overstay more than 3 Years = 5 years ban from Thailand and 20,000 baht overstay fine
  • Overstay more than 5 Years = 10 years ban from Thailand and 20,000 baht overstay fine

When caught while overstaying…

  • Overstay more than 1 Year = 10 years ban from Thailand and 20,000 Thai baht overstay fine.

Police arrested a man suspected of producing the ketamine-based illicit drug cocktail linked to at least 10 deaths in Bangkok. The man is also charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting his girlfriend at a Bangkok apartment.

Police say 33 year old Amornthep Chalermwat, known as Un Kiwi, fled Bangkok and was arrested in Phetchabun’s Bung Sam Phan district yesterday. Police say Amornthep admitted to distributing the “K powdered milk” drug cocktail, but denies producing it.

Police say the narcotic cocktail contains ketamine, methamphetamine, heroin and the sedative diazepam. The mix of drugs is suspected to have caused 10 deaths in Bangkok. Others have been hospitalised after taking the drugs and losing consciousness.

On January 9, Thachchai Klomjai fell unconscious and his boyfriend died after taking “K powdered milk.” When Thachchai regained consciousness, he told police he bought the drugs from Amornthep and another suspect, Kulnathee Iemloy, who Amornthep also named and has been arrested. Bangkok police reported 6 other deaths that weekend from “K powdered milk.”

The next day, Amornthep allegedly shot his girlfriend, Apisa Hongkhan, at an apartment in the Chatuchak area. Police say the woman was severely wounded. They suspect Amornthep shot is girlfriend out of suspicion that she had stolen the drug cocktail and sold it.

Some small-scale dealers have been arrested over the past week, but police say they believe Amornthep is a prime suspect.
