Published

 on 

Police Region 8 held a press conference in Krabi, following weeks of big drug busts, to reveal another recent drug crackdown which has netted 85,170 amphetamine pills worth around 10 million Baht on the streets.

A couple arrested in the most recent case includes 24 year old Thepnarin Naksawad and 21 year old Kamonthip Kongmee, who were living in Plai Praya District of Krabi. The police learnt about them after arresting a drug dealer, who informed the police about them.

Police contacted them and lured them to sell the drugs in a snare at an oil palm plantation. Once confronted, Thepnarin confessed that he carried the drugs for his father-in-law named ‘Ban’ to spread to customers in the area of Plai Praya District and Tab Pud District in Phang Nga.

Police found that the network has about 10 million Baht worth of assets and will seize them in accordance with the Drug Crackdown Measure Act.

Pol Col Weera Manmuang from Police Region 8 mentioned that the drugs are spreading among juveniles in the region as drug dealers had dropped prices because of additional competition and increased availability.
