Two days previous, on Friday afternoon, police arrested another man, 38-year-old Akkawut Chinsri, with 0.66 grams of ya ice (crystal meth).

Akkawut told police about a planned drug deal that was to take place on Sunday afternoon at the PT Petrol Station in Baan Manik.

Officers acted on Akkawut’s information and waited at the petrol station at about 2pm on Sunday as Komsan Prateab Na Thalang turned up on a motorbike acting suspiciously.

Officers approached Komsan and asked to search him but he resisted, assaulted them and tried to escape.

All drugs dealers , convicted, should be banned for life from Phuket island.Perhaps that will be a useful signal to these thai 'merchandisers'?
