A Phuket woman has been arrested with 20,772 methamphetamine pills and 73.43 grams of crystal methamphetamine in Chalong.
Police arrested 39-year-old Jiraphon ‘Sao’ Chauykerd in front of a house in Soi Luang Por Cham in Chalong and seized the drugs from the residence.
Jiraphon was taken to Chalong Police Station where she was charged with illegal possession of Category 1 drugs with intent to sell.
She admitted that a man, named only as “Bang”, hired her to deliver drugs to his customers. She received Bt500 each time and also Bt12,000 as a salary.
The arrest comes after police previously detained a woman named Manita “Jam” Chuasakun. She was charged earlier with illegal possession of Category 1 drugs with intent to sell.
When Manita's father visited her at the Phuket Provincial Prison, she told him that a woman named ‘Sao’ was selling drugs. Manita’s father tipped-off police, which led to the second arrest.
