Police waited for the man, Supoj Numnuam, on Luang Por Rd in Phuket Town, where they were informed he was due to sell pills to a teenager. Upon Supoj’s arrival at 10pm, police searched his motorbike and found 10 pills stashed under the seat. He was subsequently arrested.

Supoj, originally from Satun, then led police to his rental house on Rassada Nusorn Rd in Rassada where a further 30,884 pills – some red-orange colour, others green, carrying the logo ‘WY’ – were found in plastic zip-lock bags. Police also uncovered a .32-calibre homemade pistol (Thai Pradit) and 77 bullets.

The drugs, firearm and ammunition were seized, alongside an OPPO smartphone and other mobiles.

Supoj confessed that all pills, the firearm and the ammunition belonged to him.

Police charged Supoj with possession of a Category 1 drug with intent to sell, and illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition.

Great work! Now hopefully the court system deals with this miserable drug dealer harshly.

A good catch! However, it would be great to read later how RTP trace back drugs, gun, ammunition from were it came from. It didn't drop from the sky. Right?  1 Man never has the money to buy that amount of drugs from a thai drug factory just from his pocket.  This is organised crime, involve many.
