Police raided a house in Moo 7, Banglamung, and arrested Pichate Katesanchai, a 38-year old volunteer police officer, on suspicion of selling drugs. Also arrested was Jiraporn Thongpimai, 27, residing at the same address. Police found 1.61 gm of ice (crystal methamphetamine) and a vehicle suspected of being used in illicit operations.
Officers set up a rendezvous location and plain clothes officers pretended to be interested in buying drugs from the pair. Jiraporn claimed that the drugs in her possession were for her own use only and Pichate could not explain why his urine tested positive for prohibited substances.
