282K methamphetamine pills seized in Krabi | The Thaiger

Krabi police have seized 282,000 methamphetamine pills with a street value of around 15 million baht. The methamphetamine pills were paid with cars to launder money.

Krabi Police have arrested four suspects – 33 year old Khwanchai ‘Mark’ Boonjan from Chumphon, 38 year old Sutane ‘Ple’ Puangpen from Krabi, Narongdet ‘Khai’ Pankarn from Chumphon and 29 year old Visit ‘Wha’ Suchartpong from Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Police seized the 282,000 methamphetamine pill and other items worth around 5 million baht.

Region 8 Police Deputy Commander Maj Gen Nantadet Yoinuan says, “Drugs are paid with cars not money in order to trick officers. They swap the cars for cash. Suspects sell the cars with second hand cars shops and then open other businesses. This is just one of the money laundering tricks.”

13 million methamphetamine pills worth around 500 million baht had been transferred from Myanmar to Chumphon but most of them have already been distributed around local drug networks. Officers only seized the remaining 282,000 pills.

It’s still closed but the coral reef restoration project at Maya Bay on Koh Phi Phi Ley needs more volunteer divers.

The Marine National Park Operation Centre 3 (Trang) says that the project has been conducted by the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation under the support of the founder of Ocean Quest Global Anuar Abdullah who has provided advice and necessary training for the restoration process of the fragile coral infrastructure at the closed marine national park.

He says that all methods being applied are natural methods of propagating coral.

The implementation of the project has been running with volunteers from many dive centres in Koh Phi Phi, Singha Estate and staff from Marine National Park Operation Centre 3 and the Had Noppratthara Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.

Now the call has gone out for more volunteer divers to assist in the restoration project.

Investigation into mine explosion on a Phang Nga Bay bird’s-nest concession island

Investigation into mine explosion on a Phang Nga Bay bird’s-nest concession island | The Thaiger
by Sittichai Sikhawat 

Police have launched an investigation into an explosion at a bird’s-nest concession area in Phang Nga bay, where one man was killed and another injured on Monday night. The island is Koh Lao Dua, six kilometres north of Koh Yao Noi.

Story HERE (one man has died since The Thaiger story).

25 year old Boodrod Thongdee died following the blast, while 35 year old Somchai Thongdee was injured.

Somkid Thongdee, who was with the two victims at the time, survived the explosion without injury. He maintains that they had entered the area to collect wild orchids. One of the men stepped on a mine planted along the beach.

A local community leader, however, is raising doubts about their claim, saying that locals had long known that the concession area was out of bounds.

(Do tour operators and inquisitive tourists know about the locations? Are there clear and obvious warning signs along the beaches?)

“Some measures have been used to deter thieves,” the community leader said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The day after the blast police found more mines planted in the concession area.

One of them was apparently similar to a device that police had seized from bird’s-nest watchers last year.
