A care taker at the property told police that Kyran was staying in the room with a Thai woman for about four months but the woman had left him two months ago. Now Kyran is living alone.

“At night time his foreign friends are always visiting his room.”

Kyran admitted that this cocaine belongs to him. He was taken to the Thalang Police Station to face charges of possession of a Category 2 drug with intent to sell and also charges of being an illegal alien.

Thalang Police Chief Col Jakkapong Leamsuwan says, “Kyran can speak English well. His customers simply order cocaine by calling him on his mobile phone.”
