Police arrested a decadent 35 year old Thai monk at a temple in Samut Prakan province near Bangkok after he was found using and selling drugs. The miscreant monk also had sex with men at the temple. Condoms, poppers, lubricating gel, and women’s dresses were found as evidence.

Officers from the Patrol and Special Operations Division of the Metropolitan Police Bureau received a tip-off that the monk, Vee, sold drugs to teenagers in the Phra Samut Chedi district of Samut Prakan and also engaged in sexual activities with men in his accommodation within the temple.

A police officer posed as a drug addict and ordered drugs from the monk. Vee accepted the order and asked the undercover officer to collect the drugs and pay for them at the temple at 2.40pm on Tuesday, June 18.

After the monk handed the drugs to the undercover officer, officers who had been monitoring him closely at the temple revealed themselves and arrested the nefarious man.

Officers raided Vee’s accommodation and discovered 3.6 grammes of crystal methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Officers checked the monk’s mobile phone and found lots of gay pornography.

Police also found condoms, lubricating gel, and poppers, which are used as sex enhancers by relaxing the anal muscles. Women’s clothes were present in the monk’s premises.

Vee confessed to selling drugs and asking his customers to collect the drugs at the temple. He admitted to having had sex with men at his accommodation previously but later asked his friends to pick him up at night for sex and parties at nightclubs.

Vee also told police that he ordered crystal meth and ketamine from a man named Bee. Officers then ordered Vee to arrange another drug order, planning to arrest Bee. However, Bee did not deliver the drugs himself but hired an app-based delivery rider to send the drugs.

Officers forced Vee to leave the monkhood and took him to the police station for further legal proceedings. A more in-depth investigation into Bee will be conducted.
