Sattahip Police Station orchestrated a shutdown of a raucous drug party at an undisclosed pool villa in the Bang Sare subdistrict of Chon Buri province yesterday, January 4. The villa’s name remains under wraps as authorities delve into the aftermath of the wild revelry.

Over 20 officers stormed the villa, responding to numerous grievances from bleary-eyed locals disturbed by the thumping beats. The party, reportedly fuelled by drugs, had been escalating throughout the night, prompting the decisive police action at 4.30am.

Inside, a contingent of eight Thai teenagers, comprising six males and two females, were caught in the act of spinning out-of-control tunes amid a haze of suspected drug use, as per Sattahip police reports. In a stunning twist, the authorities confiscated undisclosed quantities of ketamine, alongside drug paraphernalia, reported Pattaya News.

The unidentified teens underwent mandatory drug tests and are slated to face the legal repercussions of their alleged drug abuse and ketamine possession, according to Sattahip police. As the investigation unfolds, the clandestine party’s aftermath promises to reveal more details.
