Woman arrested with meth in sting
Police have arrested a Burmese woman with methamphetamine pills and crystal methamphetamine.
A team of the Phuket City police arrested 46-year-old Thet Mar Win at a house in Rassada, east of Phuket Town. She was found with 1 gram of crystal meth and 14 pills. She has been charged with possession of Category 1 drugs with intent to sell.
The arrest comes after police received a tip-off that Thet Mar Win was selling drugs to teenagers in Rassada. The sting operation was conducted with undercover police offering to buy crystal meth from her.
Thet Mar Win purportedly admitted that she bought 1.5 grams of crystal meth and 20 meth pills for Bt3,000 from a woman named only as "Yee" and a man called "Yang Kong".
