PHUKET TOWN: Phuket Town Police detectives yesterday arrested a husband and his wife on charges of selling ya bah (methamphetamine). Pol Capt Somkid Boonyarat identified the couple as Somkiet Charoenjit, 25, who has a small laundry business, and Malee Sorn-un, 29, a singer. Detectives had been watching Somkiet and Malee for a while, Capt Somkid said. They had gathered evidence that the couple were selling the drug to students and young people in the Saphan Hin area, using deliveries of laundry to make drug deliveries at the same time. Finally, an officer posing as a drug buyer made an appointment with the couple in front of the Caltex gas station on Srisena Rd. Once the sale had taken place, other officers moved in to make the arrest. The couple, who subsequently admitted the charge, were found to be in possession of 130 pills of the drug.
