A Thai couple have been arrested on suspicion of selling crystal methamphetamine (ice) on Koh Samui.

25 year old Tantikorn Prommet and 23 year old Patsuda Jaisawang were arrested by police at their rented room on the island at 5.30pm yesterday (Monday).

Two packs of crystal methamphetamine, weighing 100 grams in total, were found in the room.

The arrest was made in a raid planned by Koh Samui assistant district chief Thammanoon Sukcharoen, who sent an undercover official to buy a small amount of “ice” from Tantikorn for 10,000 baht.

When he came out of the room to hand over the drug, district officials and troops moved in to arrest him. But Tantikorn managed to get back inside and locked the door, prompting officials to break in and arrest the pair.

Koh Samui: “Awash with drugs”, ONB News | The Thaiger

ONB News is reporting that Koh Samui is “awash with drugs” and that the local prison was crammed full of prisoners convicted on drugs charges.

They were making the assessment following the latest arrest of a Thai woman and her Thai husband on drugs charges on the popular holiday island.

‘Ice’ or crystal methamphetamine was found at her home in Bo Phut.

The 37 year old, Pinkaew Joseph Pickering, was arrested. She admitted she had been selling the drugs to Thais and foreign tourists. She said she had been married to a foreigner for a year, but it didn’t work out and now she was married to a Thai man. She also had a 10 month old child.

She told police she had to turn to drugs to make ends meet. Police believe she was more involved in the drugs trade than that. They had previously arrested her new Thai husband also for involvement in the drugs trade.

ONB reported that 80% of the inmates at the Samui District prison were incarcerated for drugs.
