Awfully well known expat cop arrested for drugs in Phuket


Recommended Posts

Relates to Phuket....but could easily apply to some in pattaya


Also, an interesting story in the comments from a guy who was shaken down for 60k after he was involved in a scooter crash..




An expat police volunteer well known to both this site and probably even better known to the media down in Phuket has been arrested for selling ‘Ice’ and ‘Yaa Baa’ after being arrested in a police sting.


No explanation has been given as to why police in Chalong, Phuket, have turned against Garry Halpin, 57, apart from of course the reasons of law and order, because he has had close relations with the local police station for many years – and his adopted role was as foreign arbitrator…that is he took money for things to be done, not to be done, and/or solve problems.



Halpin, who lives in a spacious pool villa, was also the boss of Raya Diving – set behind the police station.


Halpin was arrested at the Chalong Villas Resort last night.


For the full story go to Phuketwan which is now reporting that Halpin has not confessed to dealing in drugs and possessing drugs equipment such as scales and insists he never sold drugs to tourists.


This site has been in receipt of a number of complaints relating to this volunteer. Chalong Police too have had their controversial moments.

Arrested Tourist Police Volunteer Halpin still awaiting court date for ya ice


PHUKET: -- Former Tourist Police Volunteer, New Zealander Garry Halpin, is still in a cell in Chalong Police Station – the station he used to work from – awaiting trial on a charge of dealing in drugs. No trial date has yet been set.

Halpin has denied dealing drugs, admitting only to possession.

Pol Capt Jamrun Plaiduang said, “We are prosecuting him as a drug dealer. We forwarded the case to the court long ago.

“No matter how much he denies it, nothing is going to work because we caught him with drugs. He can’t really escape from our hands.”

Although Halpin has denied the dealing charge, Capt Jamrun explained that the law stipulates the amounts that define the difference between drug user and drug dealer.

“The line between being a user and a dealer is [that the be regarded as a user] you must not have more than 15 pills of methamphetamine or 375 milligrams of pure crystal methamphetamine [ya ice]. If you have more than those amounts you are by legal definition a dealer.”

Halpin was caught in possession of 18.45 grams of ya ice, a digital scale and other drug-related equipment including a makeshift pipe for smoking ice. He was arrested in December 2013.

“Right now he is still in the cells in Chalong no one has tried to bail him out yet. [bail] would be many hundred of thousands of baht. Is he going to bail himself out? I don’t think so.”
