Pattaya Area Couple Caught Transporting Illegal Drugs

Chonburi —

Banglamung Police rounded up a Thai couple for transporting illegal drugs around the Chonburi area.

Today, May 28th, Banglamung Police swooped in on a Thai couple, Mr. Anuchit “Games” Chitchikun, 26, and Ms. Kanokporn “Nat” Kaewrurit, 23, on suspicions that they were involved in a major drug agent network largely operating in the Chonburi, Bangkok, and Nonthaburi provinces.

The authorities seized from the couple a total of 708 grams of ice (crystal meth), 940 grams of ketamine, 285 ecstasy pills, 8 sachets of rainbow-colored Happy Water, and one sedan car.

At today’s press conference, Pol. Col. Navin Sinthurat, chief of police of the Banglamung Police Station, stated that the apprehension was a result of the urgent orders from Pol. Maj. Gen. Kumpol Leelapraporn, Commander of the Chonburi Provincial Police, who instructed all police officers in Chonburi to eradicate all forms of illegal activities, following the policy of the Royal Thai Police.

He said Mr. Anuchit and Ms. Kanokporn worked as drug mules for a larger agent only named “Hin”.

The police placed an order for 100 grams of ice worth 22,000 baht from Hin and arranged to meet him, but the couple showed up with the drugs and tried to speed away on their vehicle when police presented themselves.

After a high-speed car chase, the officers were eventually able to catch the couple in Nonthaburi province.

Preliminarily, the two suspects confessed that they received orders from Hin through an application called “Ramruay 168 (Rich).” They acted as couriers to collect and deliver drugs, and received a payment of 2,000 baht each time upon their delivery.

The police have therefore filed charges against them for jointly distributing Category 1 narcotics (ice and methamphetamine) and jointly distributing substances affecting the mind and nervous system (ketamine). The case will be forwarded to the public prosecutor’s office in Bangkok’s Taling Chan area for further legal proceedings.

The couple remains in police custody.
