Boy admitted that the seized drugs belonged to him and provided further information about his supplier, Ruj, whom he communicated with via the LINE application.

Police devised a plan where Boy would place another order from Ruj to facilitate his capture. The operation was set in motion, and at approximately 3.10pm, a white Toyota arrived at the condominium. The delivery person, Sutthin, was seen exiting the vehicle with the drugs hidden inside a brown paper bag.

Upon questioning, Sutthin confessed that Ruj had instructed him to deliver the drugs, before revealing information about Ruj’s residence in Bang Phli District, Samut Prakan Province.

Around 5.40pm, officers, accompanied by Sutthin, arrived at Ruj’s residence and promptly conducted a search, which yielded no illegal items. However, Ruj confessed to selling crystal meth to Boy. Ruj was subsequently apprehended alongside Sutthin.

The operation highlights the ongoing efforts of police to crack down on drug-related activities and the importance of cooperation between suspects and law enforcement in uncovering larger drug networks, reported KhaoSod.
