Phuket’s DEA ‘drug lord’ souvenirs on hold


Recommended Posts



PHUKET: The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) office in Bangkok has confirmed that its “spot a drug lord” souvenirs will not be available in Phuket until the new year.


The souvenir items, a collection of coffee mugs, pens and T-shirts bearing images of some of the DEA’s “most wanted” drug traffickers, were initially intended to be distributed this week to coincide with the Patong Carnival on Wednesday, marking the arrival of the annual tourism high season.


David McConell, DEA Group supervisor at the Bangkok Country Office, told the Gazette today, “There were some issues on organizing a bunch of different things, so it will be postponed until the new year.

“My guess is that it will not be until the first week in February, but we’re not 100% sure yet. We’re trying to coordinate with the Thai authorities right now,” he added.

So if this guy is in Burma why the big publicity push in Thailand ?

Date of Birth: 5/29/52

Wei Hsueh-Kang, the commander of the United WA State Army's (UWSA or WA) Southern Military Command, is wanted on Federal drug violations in the Eastern District of New York. The WA is currently the dominant heroin trafficking group in Southeast Asia, and possibly worldwide. Wei Hsueh-Kang is believed to be in hiding in Burma.


The U.S. Department of State is offering a REWARD OF UP TO $2 MILLION for information leading to the arrest or conviction in the United States of Wei Hsueh-Kang.

Although they think the guy is in Burma there is probably a chance that you could get a lead on him in Thailand. He got Thai citizenship for a while then after a bunch of stuff I think that they took it away in 2001. He probably spent some time in thailand during that time and thus probably left some traces of himself and his associates. It looks like they have been after this guy for a while so any information regardless of time lag would probably help. Hence my belief for the push in thailand.

On a side note I love the t-shirts, shame they will not be out by the time I leave this time around. Would have probably got a couple, one to wear as is and one more to draw childish glasses / mustache etc on.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
