“Following her arrest, Manita’s father went to visit her at Phuket Provincial Prison. Manita told her father about the network she was working for and her father then passed this information on to police,” he said.

From 11am on Sept 18 a surveillance team were watching Sao and at 12:30pm she left her house and went out on her motorbike and stopped at Luang Por Chaem Rd.

“Officers said Sao behaved awkwardly so approached her. She took out a packet from her jacket pocket which contained two packs of ya bah, there were 200 pills in each pack,” Lt Ampon said.
