Supat admitted that he kept more drug at his house in Nakhon Sri Thammarat. Police found 115,000 methamphetamine pills at his house.

The Krabi Provincial Police Commander Maj Boontawee Toeraksa says, “This is the biggest drug arrest this year. We received a tip-off from rescue workers who assisted the accident that led us to arrest Supat.”

“Supat admitted that he received drug from his elder brother in Chiang Rai and then delivered them by train to Surat Thani. Drugs were kept in his house before being sold to southern dealers.

“We are continuing to find more dealers to face legal action in regards to this case.”
