A 21-year-old Chonburi man was arrested and caught with 2,000 meth pills during a police sting operation. The man said he delivered drugs for an unknown dealer in the Chonburi prison network. The suspect had been a coffee vendor, but he said sales were too slow to support him and his pregnant wife.

CHONBURI – March 6, 2013,[PDN]; at 1 a.m., a drug courier on a motorbike was arrested by Pol. Lt. Col. Namussakarn Nilkamhaeng (Marine Police Division) and water patrol officers together with Mr. Prawit Chaibuadaeng, head of the center of operating for special cases in the eastern part and the officers of DSI.

The suspect was identified as Mr. Natthavuth or Paeng Feuangfuphol, age 21. Police seized the evidence of 2,000 amphetamine pills and a blue-white Yamaha Feno motorbike. A police investigation revealed that the suspect was a major courier delivering drugs in Chonburi. So the police sent an undercover agent to contact the suspect to buy amphetamines.

The agent made an appointment for the suspect to deliver the drugs in the Soi beside Subdistrict Administrative Organization of Na Pa, Amphur Meuang, Chonburi province. At the appointed time, Mr. Natthavuth drove up to the location and gave the drugs to the officer, who then sent the signal to the police to arrest him.


During questioning, Mr. Natthavuth confessed that he had been hired three separate times to deliver drugs. Previously he sold coffee and drinks, but later the sales revenue was not good, and his wife will give birth soon. So he wanted money to feed his baby after the baby is born.

As for the drug dealer whom he delivered the drugs for, Mr. Natthavuth said he only knew him as “Mr. Bank,” and did not know his real name. He said Mr. Bank would call and hire him to deliver drugs to customers. Mr. Natthavuth would call and instruct him to pick up the drugs left in various places around Chonburi. Then Mr. Natthavuth would deliver the drugs to customers.

When he finished his drug deliveries, Mr. Bank would transfer 2,000 THB into Mr. Natthavuth’s bank account as payment. Initially, the police restrained Mr. Natthavuth to be investigated further and prosecute according to the law.
