A suspected drug dealer was arrested in Chonburi yesterday after crashing his motorcycle while trying to escape from the police.
Police later seized 500 grams of crystal meth and 2,000 methamphetamine pills from the Thai man’s home. The suspected drug dealer, Sonthaya Suwan, aka boy, was injured in the accident, but further details about his condition were not reported in the newspaper article.
After Boy’s arrest, police searched his home in the Samet area of the main district and found the methamphetamine. The boy is likely to be charged with illegal possession of Category 1 drugs with intent to sell.
Police stated that “Boy” had confessed to drug trafficking. The boy reportedly told police he was a delivery boy, or “drug mule,” and that he was getting 1,000 baht to 10,000 baht per delivery. He says he never knew exactly who he worked for or how to contact his superiors in the drug trade directly.
